When home is where harm is

While families can be havens of cooperation, solidarity and love, too often they are sites of significant danger and harm for women and girls. Violence against women and girls (VAWG) is one of the most prevalent and systemic human rights violations in the world, often described as a pandemic. Women and girls are subject to different forms of violence from family members across their lives, with widespread experiences of abuse during childhood, adolescence and adulthood. Some 30 per cent of women worldwide who have ever been in a relationship have experienced physical and/or sexual violence from an intimate partner over their lifetime.
