Reporting on Violence against Women and Girls

Addressing vulnerability and promoting security
Posted Dec 03, 2019 | UNESCO

Worldwide, nearly one in three women have experienced physical or sexual violence by their intimate partners, and seven per cent have experienced sexual assault by another person. 38 per cent of all murders of women are committed by (ex-) intimate partners, and more than 126 million girls were not born due to prenatal sex selection. Several reports on violence against women have succeeded in changing attitudes and driving legislative and social changes. Public interest journalism is therefore an essential lever in the fight against gender-based violence. The #MeToo movement, was for the most part launched by US newspaper investigations. This UNESCO handbook is aimed at journalists who are interested in the challenges of gender violence.
