Event Description

Violence against women and girls continues to be a devastating experience for individuals, families, and communities in peace, conflict, and crisis areas. 1 in 3 females experience sexual violence from partners, non-partners, or both according to the UN. Females face potential violence in their homes, workplaces, schools, and communities; as well as online. The current pandemic has exacerbated risk factors for violence against women and girls, such as poverty and unemployment. Hard won rights, laws and policies to protect women and girls are being challenged, and in some cases revoked.

For decades, around the world people have been working to address violence against women and girls through services to support survivors and their families, as well as education, activism, and advocacy to challenge and change attitudes, norms, policies, and laws. This work is individual, local, national, and global. Addressing violence, including its root causes, is central to ensuring gender justice and peace for current and future generations.

Join us on November 25 as to hear from speakers from different countries on their work on addressing gender-based violence.
