Empowerment and Effects of Gender Based Violence: How to address this growing pandemic.

Gender-based violence (GBV) is a violation of human rights and a form of discrimination. It is defined as violence that is directed against a person on the basis of gender. Gender-based violence reflects and reinforces inequalities between men and women.

Gender-based violence and violence against women are often used interchangeably as most gender-based violence is inflicted by men on women and girls.
