Violence against women/girls child

Usbin
Posted November 21, 2020 from Nigeria

One characteristic of gender-based violence is that it knows no social or economic boundaries and affects women and girls of all socio-economic backgrounds: this issue needs to be addressed in both developing and developed countries.

Decreasing violence against women and girls requires a community-based, multi-pronged approach, and sustained engagement with multiple stakeholders. The most effective initiatives address underlying risk factors for violence, including social norms regarding gender roles and the acceptability of violence.u

 

Let's support initiatives and important steps on a rapidly evolving journey to bring successful interventions to scale, build government and local capacity, and to contribute to the knowledge base of what works and what doesn’t through continuous monitoring and evaluation.

We are one, women a nation builder

Hello Usbin,
A strong message and call for action, and I so agree. Women have been reporting even increased violence with the heightened stress of covid, and Governments who have responded with little or n help are continuing to ignore what is happening. Yes, let's get behind any steps increasing women's safety, and raise our voices collectively for government responsibility. Yes, we are one working together on this.

This pandemic has brought increased GBV to the forefront. I agree. The solution needs to be multi-pronged
