Guardian Podcast Examines Efforts To Stop Violence Against Women

In this Guardian “Global development podcast,” Liz Ford, Guardian global development’s deputy editor, speaks with Irene Khan, head of the International Development Law Organization; Korto Williams, country director of ActionAid Liberia; Andrew Long from the U.K. Foreign Office’s prevention of sexual violence in conflict initiative; and Lakshmi Puri, deputy executive director of U.N. Women, about global efforts to stop violence against women. Noting that the U.N. Commission on the Status of Women is set to meet next month to discuss the topic, Ford asks, “Do high-level summits and internationally binding treaties really help change behavior locally? Do grassroots community initiatives work on their own? And what is the role of education?” A transcript of the conversation, as well as the podcast, are available online (2/22).
