Women and girls continue to face physical and sexual violence in countries around the world. 1 in 5 women and girls between the ages of 15-49 have reported experiencing physical or sexual violence by an intimate partner within a 12-month period, 750 million women and girls were married before the age of 18, and at least 200 million women and girls have undergone female genital mutilation. Gender equality is not only a fundamental human right, but a necessary foundation for a peaceful, prosperous and sustainable world.
Corporations can support safety for women in many ways, including by creating a safe workplace and work culture, supporting gender equality at work, and establishing strong human rights policies that include safety from violence (and requiring supply chain partners to adhere to similar policies).
