Global Initiative to End Violence Against Women

The Global Initiative to End Violence Against Women aims to combat the pervasive issue of violence against women, with nearly one in three women worldwide having experienced physical or sexual violence. The initiative calls for robust legal protections, comprehensive data, and a unified effort to address this global problem, highlighting the need for enhanced legislative action, improved gathering of statistical data, and the inclusion of gender considerations in all matters affecting women’s lives.
