Violence Against Women and Girls- Does Faith Matter?
Violence Against Women and Girls. Does Faith Matter? Policy Brief | Through the “What Works to Prevent Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG)” program, Tearfund was funded by the UK Government to implement a project – ‘Engaging with Faith Groups to Prevent Violence Against Women and Girls in Conflict-affected Communities’. This policy paper, drawing on research conducted by Tearfund, reveals that faith leaders have unique reach and influence within conflict-affected communities and a mandate to speak into these issues. If mobilized and equipped, they can play a key role in more effective prevention of and response to VAWG.
