Violence Against Women and Girls – an international perspective.

‘The Mission to end Violence Against Women and Girls’

Looking at UN Women and other international organization’s statistics on violence against women and girls, no evidence of progress can be seen in many countries around the world. Domestic/Violence against women and girls is gender-based violence. This workshop will gather information from several regions around the globe. Our goal is to highlight positive and successful activity which can change the ongoing difficulties and challenges for women and girls wherever they live. The UN gathered data from 106 countries, and we can read the following:

“Globally, an estimated 736 million women—almost one in three—have been subjected to physical and/or sexual intimate partner violence, non-partner sexual violence, or both at least once in their life (30 per cent of women aged 15 and older). Violence against women can result in significant costs to the state, to victims/survivors, and communities. Costs are both direct and indirect, and tangible and intangible. Globally, violence against women disproportionately affects low- and lower-middle-income countries and regions. 81,000 women and girls were killed in 2020, around 47,000 of them (58 per cent) died at the hands of an intimate partner or a family member, which equals to a woman or girl being killed every 11 minutes in their home. In 58 per cent of all killings perpetrated by intimate partners or other family members, the victim was a woman or girl. Less than 40 per cent of the women who experience violence seek help of any sort and very few look to formal institutions, such as police and health services. Less than 10 per cent of those seeking help appealed to the police.

In 2018, for every 10 victims of human trafficking detected globally, about five were adult women and two were girls. Most of the detected victims of trafficking for sexual exploitation (92 per cent) are females. School-related gender-based violence is a major obstacle to universal schooling and the right to education for girls”.

These facts can go on for much longer however this workshop will bring you to Cambodia, Ethiopia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Sweden, Thailand and USA in our mission to seek solutions.
