Dispatches from the Global Struggle to End Violence Against Women

© UNHCR

As world leaders gather to assess global progress on gender equality this week during the 57th session of the UN Commission on the Status of Women (UNCSW), women on the ground are also coming together across borders, uniting their voices to end violence against women worldwide. For the last six months, World Pulse has gathered testimonies and listened to recommendations from our community on the issue of gender-based violence.

These voices are breaking through silence to push global commitments and pioneer local solutions for gender equality and women's empowerment. Follow these rising vocal leaders as they take you through the darkest shadows of violence in their communities, and lead you to the brightest spots of grassroots driven change.
