  1. GBV is deeply rooted in societal norms but it is also interlinked with economic and institutional factors such as Women’s access to paid employment. A large number or women are unemployed, that compel them to stay in abusive relationships.
  2. Break the limit, create equal opportunity, free and fair participation of women with men in every sphere. That will gradually end Gender Based Violence.
  3. We need to change the way people think, bearing in mind that change doesn’t come just by formulating and imposing laws.
  4. We need to reach out to young people, including those in remote and rural areas without internet access, and tap into new ideas that could paint a new future for our countries.

  3. Be a Leader: Keep yourself, your family and community safe against GBV, Sexual Harassment and COVID19
