Ending Gender Based Violence
The United Nations reports that at least one out of every three women around the world has been beaten, raped, or otherwise abused in her lifetime—with the abuser usually someone known to her.
The consequences of violence against women are physically debilitating and a major cause of death and disability for women aged 15 to 44 years, rating higher than deaths caused by motor vehicle accidents, cancer, and malaria.
However, the psychological and social consequences are equally devastating as the stigma associated with sexual violence and domestic abuse leaves women incredibly vulnerable and jeopardizes the well-being of families, fractures communities, and stalls the economic development of a nation.
