Gender-based violence (GBV) occurs when someone is hurt as a result of their gender identity or biological sex. Physical, sexual, emotional, and psychological abuse can occur in public or private life. Threats, coercion, and economic or educational deprivation can also be considered forms of domestic violence.
Worldwide, gender-based violence affects people. Women are disproportionately affected by gender-based violence. Violence against women is the subject of numerous organizations. UN Population Fund estimates that one in three women have been physically or sexually assaulted at some point in their lives. Financial, emotional, and verbal abuse are not included in this definition. Because of societal shame and a lack of resources and support networks, gender-based violence is often underreported despite its widespread presence.
GBV can impact anyone, regardless of where they reside, their socioeconomic level, race, religion, or sexual orientation. Gender-based violence is not just a problem for women and girls. Boys, men, and people of all sexual and gender identities are also victims. GBV has far-reaching effects on the body, mind, wallet, and society. As a result of sexualized violence, unwanted pregnancies, unsafe abortions, the spread of sexually transmitted infections (STIs), and social exclusion can occur. Stigma and physical and mental agony from the assault may also prevent survivors from gaining a better standard of living in society.
This also happened to this woman, who was beaten so severely that her face was scarred for life. An outcry ensued on social media because of this.
