Why are we talking GBV?
Gender-based violence has an impact on people all over the world. Gender-based violence, on the other hand, disproportionately impacts women. As a result, several organizations are attempting to eliminate violence against women. According to the UN Population Fund, one out of every three women has been physically or sexually assaulted at some point in their life. Emotional, financial, and verbal abuse are exclude from the list. Gender based violence is commonly underreported, despite its prevalence, due to stigma and a lack of resources and support networks.
The Figures Of The World
- Physical or sexual intimate partner violence and non-partner sexual assault have been experienced by 35% of women globally.
- In the world, 7% of women have sexually attacked by someone who isn’t their boyfriend.
- An intimate partner is responsible for up to 38% of all female killings worldwide.
- 200 million women have experienced female genital mutilation/cutting.
Domestic Violence Reporting Statistically:
“The majority of violence against women, especially in the home, goes undetected. Violence affects approximately 70-90 percent of Pakistani women in rural regions. In urban areas, the female population fared a little better.”
Education Impact Of GBV
Despite the painstaking efforts of social workers and non-governmental organizations, the situation for victims of gender based violence remains largely unchanged. The obstacles are vast, spanning from identifying, apprehending, and punishing perpetrators to the healing of traumatized victims and their reintegration into society as healthy individuals. The latest spousal abuse case in Gujranwala is an excellent illustration.
While access to self-empowerment possibilities such as education, public transportation, and a larger range of career opportunities helps women and girls in metropolitan areas, their lives are far from perfect. For example, consider the surge in domestic violence incidents in Sindh due to the COVID-19 outbreak. In addition, the United Nations’ Advocacy Brief on Gender and Pandemic Urgent Call for Action, released in April 2020, is yet another sobering reminder of how the situation for domestic violence victims has only gotten worse during the pandemic.
The mentality that leads to female enslavement in our society and the elements that support it must be re-examined. All of the characters in people’s lives’ acts and inactions are merely symptoms of the disease. The sickness is the mentality that supports Gender Based Violence basic human rights. Therefore, if we truly want to empower the country’s entire population and bring about true change, we must modify our ideology.
