What can we learn about the role of feminist and women’s movements in the context of ending violence against women?
There is evidence that strong, autonomous feminist and women’s movements are key to ending violence against women and girls. Countries with the strongest feminist movements tend to have more comprehensive policies on violence against women than those with weaker or non-existent movements. The UN Trust Fund to End to Violence against Women’s “External Literature Review” presents some evidence but identifies some gaps.
