The Right to Freedom from Violence

Violence against girls and women of all ages is a widespread and systemic violation of human rights. Many older women in sub-Saharan Africa are particularly vulnerable to physical, sexual and psychological violence, as well as financial abuse and neglect. GRAN uses its voice to raise awareness of these serious human rights violations and advocates for action to prevent and eliminate gender-based violence.
