Please join CARE today in calling for an end to this atrocity now!

Gender-based violence is one of the most widespread – but least recognized – human rights abuses in the world. Globally, one out of three women will be beaten, coerced into sex or otherwise abused in her lifetime. This violence is happening to our sisters, mothers, grandmothers, aunts and daughters around the world.

This violence leaves survivors with long-term psychological and physical trauma; tears away at the social fabric of communities; and is used with terrifying effect in conflict settings, with women as the main target.

It doesn't have to be this way. Women and men from all walks of life are joining together to help bring an end to these pervasive, and often deadly, acts of violence.

Please join CARE today in calling for an end to this atrocity now!
