December 15, 2015

Asian Development Bank has released a quick guide for education specialists to effectively address violence against women within schools.

Integrating gender-based violence prevention and response into education can be effective through challenging social norms and gender stereotypes.

Developing policies of zero tolerance and procedures to address violence against women and girls in the educator sector help to reduce the concerns of parents reluctant to enrol their daughters for fear of exposure to violence.
