Due to the increasing number of acts of violence perpetuated against women and girls globally, the NGO CSW Geneva decided to develop a series of advocacy papers on different forms of VAWG, to support its members advocacy efforts.

Subsequent advocacy Briefs are planned on

  • Female Genital Mutilation (FGM)
  • Crimes in the name of Honour
  • Workplace Violence
  • Elder abuse
  • Child early and forced marriage

The advocacy Briefs series is an initiative from World YWCA, WWSF, Femmes Africa Solidarité (FAS) and Inter African Committee (IAC).
