GENDER BASED VIOLENCE
& FEMICIDE (GBVF)
Gender-based violence is violence directed against a person because of their gender. Both women and men experience gender-based violence but the majority of victims are women and girls
Femicide: Femicide is defined as “The intentional killing of females [women or girls] because they are females.
Written by Olivia Giovetti: March 5, 2019. Gender-based violence (GBV) has been recognized as an international public health and human rights issue — but it’s also a key driver of extreme poverty. An estimated 35% of women worldwide have experienced either physical or sexual violence.
Gender stereotypes and are often used to justify violence against women. Cultural norms often dictate that men are aggressive, controlling, and dominant, while women are docile, subservient, and rely on men as providers.
Just as empowering women can help eliminate hunger, food scarcity also leads
to increased gender-based violence.
Forced marriage/relationships isn’t just the result of hunger; conflict zones have also created more child brides/partners
