When women succeed, we all succeed. By investing in women’s education, workplace equality, and the elimination of gender-based violence (GBV), you’re investing in the future. That’s because as women grow, their families, communities, and countries grow with them.

Together, let’s stand up for women’s rights. Africa4Her 2019 was dedicated to speaking out against gender-based violence: an issue that affects more than one in three women around the world, however, GBV is not just something experienced by women. GBV is any type of violence that is directed at an individual based on his or her gender. And that’s why we need everyone’s help to put a stop to it.

By learning about what GBV is and how it affects communities, you’ll be empowered to step up and speak out against it.
