International Community Should Increase Efforts To Address Violence Against Women, Girls

The Lancet: Violence against women and girls: how far have we come?
Editorial Board

“…[A]lthough good examples of progress [addressing gender-based violence] exist, much more can be done. Addressing missed opportunities will be crucial moving forward. … As the problem of violence against women and girls is elevated in global policy circles, the activists who put the issue on the map are increasingly being left out of the discussions. But these are the people who will identify emerging issues and ensure that the development of policies and services remain responsive to the needs of women and girls. They echo the concerns of women and girls. Their voices are critical for future progress” (11/21).
