Publications: Legal reform and institutional change to end gender-based violence against women and girls.
Globally around 81,000 women and girls are killed annually, and around 47,000 of them (58 percent) died at the hands of an intimate partner or a family member, which equals to a woman or girl being killed every 11 minutes in their home.
These crimes are preventable.

ABOUT GLOBAL RIGHTS FOR WOMEN
Our work will not be complete until survivors of violence are acknowledged and believed, perpetrators are held accountable, and communities no longer accept violence against women and girls.
Engage with the organization
Our work together improves law, policy and practice so that women in their community can achieve safety and equality, which has ripple effect around the world. This can be done through an array of customized trainings on bettering responses to violence against women and girls, as well as collaborations and partnerships with nongovernmental organizations, government and US Embassy contacts.
