Call for Men to Fight Gender Violence

Most predominant form of GBV experienced by women and perpetrated by men occurs within intimate partnerships

According to the United Nations, one in three women will be beaten, raped or abused in her lifetime, translating to one billion women who are both directly and indirectly affected by gender violence.
 
The gender-based violence (GBV) Indicators Study carried out by Gender Links in six countries of Southern Africa, show that the most predominant form of GBV experienced by women and perpetrated by men occurs within intimate partnerships.
 
According to the study, men who were abused in childhood were more likely to be violent to their partners and were also more likely to have done so more than once.
