How Can We Stop the Cycle of Violence?
March 6, 2020
Promundo to host panel discussion on preventing intergenerational cycles of gender-based violence in partnership with Together for Girls, The Global Partnership to End Violence Against Children, Sonke Gender Justice, Futures Without Violence, SVRI, the World Health Organization (WHO), UNICEF, and the UN Girls’ Education Initiative (UNGEI).
Two decades of studies affirm that exposure to violence in childhood increases the likelihood that an individual will experience or perpetrate intimate partner violence (IPV) in adulthood, as well as other forms of violence. Exposure to violence in childhood is by far the strongest predictor of whether a man uses violence later in life.
On Thursday, March 12th, Promundo is hosting a webinar on preventing intergenerational cycles of violence that will convene key stakeholders to explore how we can act on the evidence before us to put in place interventions that address trauma as a way to prevent future violence and improve the well-being of women and children.
This event was originally planned in the context of the 64th Session of the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women.
