Mapping Gender-Based Violence programmes, services and policies in Lebanon

26.07.2021 / Created by ARCGE

Violence against women and girls (VAWG) is one of the most prevalent human rights abuses worldwide. It stems from gender disparity and patriarchal social structures that grant privilege to men, thus creating unequal power dynamics. This gender inequality is the major contributor to perpetuated cycles of violence.

Across the world, one in every three women is believed to be subjected to violence during their lifetime, with intimate partner violence accounting for the majority of cases. Despite this overwhelming number, and the usually severe long-lasting consequences of Gender-Based Violence (GBV) on the health, well-being, education, livelihoods, and safety of its survivors, cases of violence remain systematically under-reported.

In collaboration with other organisations, Abaad has put together a series of contents that aim at mapping gender-based violence in Lebanon.
