About UN Women
Grounded in the vision of equality enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations (UN), UN Women works for the elimination of discrimination against women and girls (VAWG), the empowerment of women, and the achievement of equality between women and men as partners and beneficiaries of development, human rights, humanitarian action, and peace and security. Placing women’s rights at the centre of all its efforts, UN Women leads and coordinates the efforts of the UN system to ensure that commitments on gender equality and gender mainstreaming translate into action throughout the world. UN Women provides strong and coherent leadership in support of Member States’ priorities and efforts, building effective partnerships with civil society and other relevant actors.
Violence against women and girls (VAWG) is one of the most widespread violations of human rights worldwide, globally affecting around one in three women in her lifetime. Regional evidence suggests that a similar ratio applies in the Asia-Pacific region. Forms of VAWG may vary, and there are variations across sites, however, current available data indicates that in 2018, 19% of women in South Asia, 9% in Southeast Asia and between 19% and 30% in the Pacific experienced physical and/or sexual intimate partner violence in the past 12 months. Lifetime prevalence of intimate partner violence is as high as 53% in Kiribati and 50% in the Solomon Islands. Many VAWG policies and programmes have focused on responding to violence and mitigating its impact after violence has occurred - which is urgent and essential. However, as highlighted in UN Women’s new Regional Prevention Strategy, although response services for VAW survivors are vital, they only reach a minority of women survivors: the majority do not seek help or report violence. It is thus vital to also work on prevention and addressing the root causes of VAWG, risk factors and broader social norms that contribute to VAWG. A growing body of prevention practice and evidence demonstrate that it is possible to prevent VAWG within 3-5 year timeframes, and that there are multiple and long-term benefits of prevention. Particularly early prevention and intervention can help prevent repeated cycles of violence, and all its avoidable social, economic and human rights costs. Therefore, more attention is needed to focus on preventing violence from occurring in the first place and documenting what works to prevent and reduce VAWG.
“Changemakers: Youth, Technology and Innovation to End Violence against Women and Girls in Asia and the Pacific”
The programme “Changemakers: Youth, Technology and Innovation to End Violence against Women and Girls in Asia and the Pacific” builds on evidence from previous interventions under the ‘Stepping Up Solutions to Eliminate Violence against Women and Girls in Asia and the Pacific’ project funded by the Government of the Republic of Korea. It aims to advance the prevention of and response to violence against women and girls (VAWG), improve quality services available for survivors of online and offline violence, counter (online) misogyny which fuels VAWG, and mobilise youth, girl-led organizations, and media actors across the Asia-Pacific region as changemakers to prevent VAWG.
As part of this programme, UN Women ROAP implemented the roll-out of the Voices against Violence curriculum in Thailand to empower youth as changemakers to create respectful and enabling communities online and offline that are free from violence.
Voices against Violence Curriculum Roll-out
Voices against Violence (VaV) is a non-formal education programme for children and youth to help stop violence against girls and young women, developed by UN Women and the World Association of Girls Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS), and with inputs from young people. Designed for age groups ranging from 5 to 25 years, it provides young people with tools and expertise to understand the root causes of violence in their communities, to educate and involve their peers and entire community including boys, young men, adults, and parents in conversations about violence with the aim of addressing the root causes of violence against girls and laying the groundwork for real social change.
Throughout 2022, UN Women successfully partnered with WAGGGS and their Thailand member organization “Girl Guides Association of Thailand” (GGAT) to engage and empower youth. The VaV curriculum was introduced in 14 schools across Thailand. The curriculum increased the knowledge and capacities of more than 3000 children and youth, teachers and facilitators on the topics of gender equality, prevention of violence in schools and safeguarding and child protection policy. Following project implementation, one school developed a resource package on Gender and Ending Violence that was integrated into the regular school curriculum.
