Counting the cost: The Price Society Pays for Violence against Women

18.07.2018 / Created by (EMWF)

Drawing from 13 studies – three of them conducted by CARE International – this global report presents the economic costs of violence against women in relation to its impact on national economies and the rates of violence against women in these countries. It clearly busts the myth that violence against women is a low-income country problem, as it highlights the global scale and costs of violence against women in high-income countries too, such as Australia, Canada, the EU and USA. This report concludes that there is an urgent and overdue need for action on the part of governments, donors and the private sector to prevent and address violence against women. This requires acknowledgement of the scale and importance of the problem, commitment to deliver solutions that work, and investment in these solutions.
