Violence Against Women and Girls

The Issue
1 in 3 women experience physical
or sexual violence
in her lifetime

As many as
1 in 4 women experience physical and/or sexual violence
during pregnancy increasing the likelihood of miscarriage and still birth

140 million girls and women
in the world have suffered female genital mutilation/cutting

Girls who experience violence are
less likely to complete their education
, are at increased risk of maternal mortality and HIV/Aids and their ability to earn a living can be put at risk

What is VAWG?
Violence against women and girls
is one of the most systematic, widespread human rights violations in the world
. It is rooted in gender inequality and power imbalances between women and men, girls and boys.

VAWG includes
any act of gender-based violence
that results in, or is likely to result in, physical, sexual or psychological harm or suffering to women and girls, including threats of such acts, coercion or arbitrary deprivation of liberty, whether occurring in public or in private life.
