It works globally to make the vision of the Sustainable Development Goals a reality for women and girls and stands behind women’s equal participation in all aspects of life.

Implementing Measures to Eradicate Gender Based Violence in South Asia

Gender-based violence is multi-dimensional and deeply rooted in inequitable societal norms and persists throughout the life cycle. Excess child mortality rates and deep-rooted bias against girls often begins in the womb. Gender biases within a household have implications on health and education outcomes, with girls and women often faring worse than boys and men on relevant indicators. Furthermore, there has been discussion around the world about how men under-report their experiences of gender-based violence by women against men, mainly due to social taboos and fears of misunderstanding created by a culture of masculine expectations.
