Violence against women
Violence against women perpetuates women’s position of economic, social and political subordination, marginalisation and inequality. It can restrict women’s movements and access to markets, limiting their opportunities to earn money.
The POWER project included training and interventions to address violence against women at the household and community level. It also worked with groups at the local, national, regional and international level to improve policies addressing violence against women, and to ensure existing policies are better implemented.
