Violence against women (VAW) is a violation of human rights rooted in gendered social structures and a pervasive problem worldwide. It cuts across age, socioeconomic, educational, and geographic boundaries, affecting all societies. Women and girls are disproportionately impacted by gender-based violence, which causes immense harm, suffering, loss of dignity, along with immediate and long-lasting medical and psychological damage. It also places a heavy burden on societies and economies.
