Women are always the first to suffer the consequences of a conflict, according to the Director of an organization working on gender issues in Jordan.

The UN says there are currently about 750,000 refugees in the country who have fled fighting in Syria.

The international community has, this week, been discussing women in conflict zones at UN headquarters in New York.
