Concerted effort can end violence against women
November 24, 2015
While there is no one solution to the complex problem of violence against women, growing evidence shows that multiple approaches and a range of actions at once can help to eliminate gendered violence.
125 countries now have laws against sexual harassment, but individuals must set the tone for zero-tolerance to violence.
According to UN Women Executive Director Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka, community mobilisation and educational programmes are most successful when backed by legal, social and behavioural changes.
