Ending Violence against women and girls: If not you, who?

Violence against women remains one of the most pervasive global human rights violations. The Sustainable Development Goals include the elimination of all forms of violence against women and girls as a specific target. UN Women, together with all its partners, is working to support countries in the area of comprehensive laws and policies for ending violence, prevention, provision of quality essential services and improved data collection and analysis.

This story was replicated from the UN Women website. The Daily Star is an official partner of UN Women’s Step It Up! Media Compact, an alliance of media organizations committed to playing an active role in advancing gender issues within the framework of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
