Violence against Women and Girls
Gender based violence was already one of the greatest human rights violations. In 2020 243 million women and girls (aged 15-49) across the world have been subjected to sexual or physical violence by an intimate partner. This number is likely to grow with multiple impacts on women’s wellbeing, mental health, and their ability to participate and lead in the recovery of our societies and economy.
The increase in violence against women must be dealt with urgently with measures embedded in economic support. The Secretary General has called for all governments to make the prevention and redress of violence against women a key part of their national response plans for COVID-19.
Recent global trends have revealed that violence against women and girls (VAWG) worsening in the context of COVID 19. Sexual and gender-based violence is a phenomenon deeply rooted in gender inequality and continues to be the most notable human rights violations throughout the world in all societies. Women and girls are increasingly at risk in their homes as there is no assistance and services given to the victims and survivors of GBV throughout the year.
Thousands of pupils especially girls are expected to have given up on school after the lengthy closures last year. This puts further risks to young girls to gender based violence, rape and teenage pregnancy including forced marriage.
