Fighting for a World Free of GBV

Gender-based violence (GBV) and harmful practices are a clear violation of human rights. They are also incredibly commonplace, a somber truth that we all need to address.

Few issues affect the lives of so many girls and women like GBV does. Because it stems from multiple factors, including male dominance, social acceptance of harmful practices, and insufficient legal protection, GBV requires an integrated approach, as well as a context-specific one. As long as girls and women fear for their safety, they cannot realize their full potential. Securing their dignity rests upon eliminating the threat of GBV and harmful practices everywhere.

Deliver for Good is focused on the solutions that benefit girls and women, and this month we profiled strategies aimed at stopping GBV. The power to end gender-based violence lies with us – let’s solve this together.
