CARE Policy Brief

June 2014 London, UK

Challenging Gender-based Violence Worldwide

Gender-based violence (GBV) is one of the most widespread human rights abuses in the world. Globally, one in three women will be raped, beaten, coerced into sex or otherwise abused in her lifetime. Though women and girls are overwhelmingly the targets of GBV, men and boys can also be subject to GBV, especially if they are perceived to be acting outside the prescribed social norms for males. This abuse takes place worldwide in homes, workplaces, schools and communities.

Exploring Dimensions of Masculinity and Violence

March - April 2007

Gender-based violence (GBV) is a major public health problem that results in devastating effects on mental and reproductive health and emotional distress. Gender-based violence also perpetuates broader structural inequalities that limit social justice and equity.
