End Gender Based Violence in Sub Saharan Africa

This petition had 31 supporters

Gender-based violence (GBV) is any harm or suffering that is perpetrated against a woman or girl, man or boy and that has a negative impact on the physical, sexual or psychological health, development or identity of the person. The cause of the violence is founded in gender-based power inequalities and gender-based discrimination. 

Preventing Gender Based Violence to stop it from happening in the first place, is a key priority. Gender Based Violence prevention strategies are intrinsically linked to efforts to increase gender equality more generally.

Women have to be engaged, protected and empowered during conflict and post-conflict settings, including in displacement, in order to lay a strong foundation for recovery and sustainable peace and development.
