From Girls to Women: Gender-Based Violence Across the Life Course (CSW62 Side Event)
13 Mar 2018 -  Every 10 minutes, somewhere in the world, an adolescent girl dies as a result of violence.
This event will explore experiences of violence in childhood and adolescence, with a sharp focus on the impact of Gender-Based Violence (GBV) on the development of adolescent girls in developing settings, humanitarian crises and protracted conflicts. Gender transformative approaches to better prevent and respond to violence at an early age and during adolescence will be discussed, including initiatives to address practices based on gender inequality that perpetuate GBV, such as child marriage and FGM/C.

Organized by: The Gender and Adolescence: Global Evidence (GAGE) Consortium, including Care, Girls Not Brides, ICRW, IRC, ODI, Pathfinder, Plan UK, Save the Children, UNICEF, World Vision
