Why money matters in efforts to end violence against women and girls
The brochure ‘Why money matters in efforts to end violence against women and girls’ is a publication launched in support of the UN Secretary-General’s campaign’s initiative ‘Orange the World: Raise Money to end Violence against Women’ for the 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence 2016.
It provides analysis of why money matters in ending violence against women and girls, describes the current funding shortfall and challenges in funding landscape, provides information on what it costs to effectively support efforts to end violence against women and girls using regionally-balanced data, and aims to demonstrate the value of investing in efforts to end violence against women and girls by providing examples of impact from the work of UN Women, grantees of the UN Trust Fund to End Violence against Women, and other civil society organizations.
This briefing also aims to reach out to organizations, United Nations Member States and interested individuals with a strong message that increasing their funding of initiatives can make a critical difference. By contributing to efforts to end violence against women, they can also help remove a major barrier to individual, community and national development.
