How a new UK Government can accelerate progress towards ending international violence against women & girls

The International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG) presents an opportunity for governments and civil society alike to review progress on addressing VAWG and design plans for the path ahead.

GADN have released this briefing which makes key recommendations for how the UK government can prioritise the elimination of international VAWG:

•          Strengthen the profile on international VAWG within the UK Government;

•          Allocate sufficient funding to tackle VAWG internationally;

•          Ensure accountability on international VAWG commitments made by UK;

•          Champion tackling VAWG at international fora in 2015 and beyond.
