Connecting Knowledge to Action: Preventing Violence Against Women and Girls in Communities
The field of violence against women and girls has committed to building evidence on the types and drivers of violence found across the world, as well as effective programs to prevent and reduce incidents of violence. Now that we know what works and how to adapt these programs to different contexts, we are presented with the question: What's next?
Join the Global Women's Institute during the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence as we welcome an expert panel of some of the foremost researchers, programmers and policymakers working in the field as we discuss how to translate knowledge to action to prevent violence against women and girls.
