Announcing a Special Event on Ending Gender Based Violence, Sponsored by The New Republic and CARE
September 04, 2013
One in three females will experience gender-based violence (GBV) in her lifetime. In the last year alone, brutal attacks against women included the horrific rape of a 23-year-old on a New Delhi bus, the shooting of an innocent schoolgirl in Pakistan, and the sexual assault of an unconscious high school student in Ohio. And these are only the examples that received public attention. Unfortunately, while GBV is one of the most common human rights abuses, these travesties often go unnoticed.
