Background

Violence against women is the systematic abuse of women’s essential human rights, including any act of gender-based violence that results in, or is likely to result in, physical, sexual or mental harm or suffering to women. It is both a cause and a consequence of inequality.

The NFWI has been campaigning for the elimination of violence against women since 2008 – raising awareness of its nature, extent aand impact.
