Ending violence against women and girls is a global movement. Violence against women and girls happens everywhere; in homes, schools, workplaces, and public spaces. It affects nearly every segment of society from all racial, socioeconomic, religious, age, gender and other groups. The statistics are sobering.
It is estimated globally that one in four women and girls will experience violence in their lifetime. 35% of women worldwide have experienced either physical and/or sexual intimate partner violence or non-partner sexual violence. Globally, 7% of women have been sexually assaulted by someone other than a partner and as many as 38% of murders of women are committed by an intimate partner.
Violence against women is a pandemic that affects all countries, cultures, economics or social strata. This article explores the meaning of “violence against women”, its root causes, types of violence and how to prevent it. The article also analyses the scope of this epidemic, the effects on women and girls, as well as its long-term impact on their lives. Read on to learn more about preventing violence against women and girls and ending it once and for all.
Ending violence against women and girls once and for all will take an entire global community working together to achieve it. That’s why the United Nations has spearheaded a new initiative called the END Violence Against Women Initiative. The initiative has six action areas that we need to work on collectively in order to end the pandemic of violence against women and girls once and for all.
