Gender-Based Violence

Exploring the obstacles and solutions to keeping women and girls safe from violence during conflict, on the streets and at home.

An estimated one in three women around the world will experience physical or sexual violence at least once in their lifetime. Whether the violence is out in the open – such as conflict rape – or behind closed doors, as with domestic abuse, the problem is prevalent and urgent. Through the stories of victims, survivors, activists and policymakers, we examine the obstacles and solutions to keeping women and girls safe from violence.
