Silent Witness to Domestic Violence

Silent Witness

Issue in Focus

Violence against women and girls has long been one of the most widespread violations in human rights.

It knows no national or cultural barriers; it takes place at home, in the workplace and in open spaces and effects millions of women and girls in peacetime and in conflict.
