Day 13 | Rape and Sexual Violence

Background of Topic:

“Throughout the world, one in three women will experience violence, such as beating, rape, or assault, in their lifetime.”  This figure was first reported by UNIFEM (now UN Women) a decade ago [in 2003]. Its validity has since been reinforced/confirmed. Sexually violent acts can take place in different circumstances and settings, including rape (within marriage and relationships, by strangers and during armed conflict), unwanted sexual advances or sexual harassment, sexual abuse of children, and forced married or cohabitation.
