Violence Against Women
Domestic violence, sexual assault, and other forms of gender-based violence deprive women and girls of their fundamental ability to live with dignity. Women and girls experience domestic violence and sexual assault at alarming rates. Governments, institutions, laws, and policies contribute to the systematic devaluation of the lives and safety of women and girls by failing to respond to gender-based violence and discriminating against those subjected to such violence.
Accountability by the government, employers, landlords, and others, as well as recognition that discrimination against survivors is a form of sex discrimination, is essential to enable women and girls to live free from violence.
