Summary

Violence against women and girls is the most common human rights violation globally, the most pervasive public health epidemic, and the biggest roadblock for many women and girls trying to access economic and educational opportunities. Yet governments and international donor agencies fail to prioritize eradication of this problem. Every woman and girl has the right to live without fear of violence. Due to political, social, economic, and physical limitations, they need our support.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Women are half the global population, yet 1 in 3 will experience violence in her lifetime. All around the world, women and girls are the victims are violence, ranging from domestic abuse and rape to female genital mutilation and forced marriage. While numerous studies show that gender-based violence (GBV) has a significant impact on the health and prosperity of women and their communities, the international community is doing little to prevent and respond to these human rights violations.

How will this project solve this problem?

Women Thrive Worldwide will work to ensure that GBV is an issue that governments and international aid programs do not ignore. By spreading awareness of its detrimental effects, we will push for more resources to be spent on preventing and responding to violence, both in peacetime and in conflict. Investing in Women Thrive also amplifies the voices of local women through our partnerships with women's organizations on the ground, giving them more power to fight for their basic human rights.

Potential Long Term Impact

When women don't have to worry about violence in their homes or communities, they will thrive. Mothers will not be abused during their pregnancies, leading to easier births and healthier children. Girls will have safe school environments. Women will gain economic freedom and be able to work in the fields and in the marketplace. Ending violence means that women will be better able to lift themselves and their families out of poverty, creating a safer world for future generations of women AND men.
