Key Resources And Best Practices

Since 2014, Global Rights for Women has been supporting communities and organizations in legal reform on violence against women. Here are our selected key resources for best practices on legal reform, specifically for those who are drafting or amending laws, researching best practices on their implementation, drafting shadow reports, or simply acquainting themselves with the vast framework of law and other materials on violence against women.

Please read a few of the contributions our team has made to the field, such as Coercive control now a crime in the UK and I-VAWA as a Mechanism to Address Normative Gaps in Legal Frameworks on Violence Against Women.

Here are our contributions to the field of addressing gender-based violence.

About Global Rights for Women

We envision a world where women and girls live free from gender-based violence, attain equal rights, and reach their full potential as human beings. We do this by cultivating international and local partnerships that are committed to human rights, justice and equality, and advancing laws, values and practices that create communities where all women and girls live free from violence.

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 local and international partners lead the initiative for change within their community, and bring Global Rights for Women in to help identify obstacles to justice and safety for survivors of violence.

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.
