By presenting a broad selection of objects and little-known accounts spanning more than a century, Who Cares? Gender and humanitarian action invites visitors to take a fresh look at the history of humanitarian action and how it is represented today. Rigid gender roles are commonplace, with men associated with action and leadership while women supply compassion and care. Yet those stereotypes are belied across time by the complexity of humanitarian work and the experience of those engaged in it.
