Women and Girls Building Peace and Preventing Sexual and Domestic Violence

Download to read offline

Sexual and domestic violence is pervasive across cultures, socio-economic status, ethnicity and age groups, with no boundaries. Women and girls suffer in silence, without knowing their rights, available resources, or how to access legal and psychosocial services. How can we, as RPFs and Rotarians, support women and girls to lead lives free of violence? Presenters shared program models from Bolivia, India, and Australia.
