Violence is preventable
UNDP, UNFPA, UN Women & UNV
regional joint programme for the prevention of violence against women and girls in Asia and the Pacific
Many women and girls in Bangladesh experience physical, sexual or psychological violence throughout their lives, mainly due to structural inequalities and deeply-rooted social norms that condone violence and the subordination of women. Gaps in national capacities and limited knowledge of prevention strategies constrain effective prevention.
In response, UN Women has launched a project piloting and promoting good practices in four of Bangladesh’s tertiary educational institutions.
