Understanding Culture, Protecting Human Rights

Thoraya A. Obaid, UNFPA Executive Director Gender Equity Human Rights


This exhibit can be used as both an advocacy and programming tool. It documents UNFPA’s experience in the field supporting projects that address violence against women in its many forms. Designed for both the general public and development practitioners, it documents approaches that can be used to confront this problem on a larger scale.

Other organizations, websites, schools and networks are encouraged to link to and use this resource in any way they can to spread awareness about gender-based violence and efforts to end it. Feel free to send the link to a friend. For questions, contact
