Violence Against Women and Girls
As an integral part of our commitment to improve the lives of urban girls and women, WomenStrong’s Learning Lab have included a focus on learning and sharing solutions devised by our partners for eliminating VAWG in their communities that might be applied worldwide.
Through WomenStrong’s work to-date, we have seen greater impact achieved by infusing programs in other sectors, such as economic empowerment, with elements designed to address some of the underlying drivers of violence. Solutions practiced, tested, and shared by our VAWG Learning Lab partners include educating girls and young women on sexual violence prevention strategies and engaging men and boys as allies of women and girls.
For an example of our partners’ groundbreaking thinking in this challenging arena, see our recent public webinar, “What Will It Take to End Violence Against Women: A Dialogue on New Paradigms for Our Era Confirmation,” led by Black Women’s Blueprint and Men Stopping Violence. Stay tuned for more of our partners’ findings and resources as they become available.
