Gender Based Violence

“Sexual violence is a global pandemic that society has accepted as the new normal for women and girls worldwide. Standing up for her safety, will be your best investment! You may be the one who helps her survive past today.”

– Mechelle B Moore

Gender-based violence is the most prevalent human rights violation in the world! It knows no social, economic, or national boundaries.

 

Worldwide, an estimated 1 in 3 women will experience physical or sexual abuse in their lifetime. Gender-based violence undermines the health, dignity, security, and autonomy of its victims, yet it remains shrouded in a culture of silence.

 

Gender-based violence can include sexual, physical, mental and economic harm inflicted in public or in private. It also includes threats of violence, coercion, and manipulation. This can take many forms such as, intimate partner violence, sexual violence, child marriage, female genital mutilation and so-called ‘honour crimes’.

 

The consequences of gender-based violence are devastating and can have life-long repercussions for survivors. It can even lead to death.
