Putting a stop to school-related gender-based violence

Putting a stop to school-related gender-based violence

School-related gender-based violence (SRGBV) affects millions of children around the world. The term encompasses acts or threats of violence that are sexual, physical or psychological in nature, fuelled by persisting gender norms and stereotypes, and enforced by unequal power dynamics. SRGBV negatively affects learners’ lives in many ways: from low self-esteem and depression, to early and unintended pregnancy, low educational outcomes and/or school drop-outs. During this conference, the speakers will demonstrate global commitments to putting a stop to SRGBV, and explore and discuss local strategies to eliminate SRGBV with case studies from Cambodia, Vietnam and Suriname.
