Between 23 July and 7 August 2012, UN Women ran a dynamic online discussion to support preparations for the forthcoming 57th Commission on the Status of Women which brought together the views of diverse respondents on the good practices and key gaps and challenges in the prevention of and response to violence against women and girls.

Participants included representatives from civil society, government organizations, research and leadership institutions and UN agencies in many countries from all regions of the world.
