16 Days of Activism - Eliminating Gender-Based Violence Against Women with Disabilities (in English)
Gender-based violence is a serious concern in Zimbabwe as it is in the rest of the world. At least 1 in every 3 women (15 – 49) have experienced physical violence (35%) while 1 in every 5 women (17%) have experienced sexual violence. In most cases, perpetrators are intimate partners. Gender-based violence is a well-documented human rights violation, a public health challenge, and a barrier to civic, social, political, and economic participation. It undermines the safety, dignity, and overall health status, social and economic wellbeing of the individuals who experience it. Studies show that women and girls with disabilities may face up to 10 times more violence than women and girls without disabilities. Perpetrators may target them because of their limited physical mobility or means of communication. During the 16 Days of Activism in 2020, UNESCO and its Spotlight Initiative Implementing Partner, the Federation of Organizations of Disabled People in Zimbabwe (FODPZ) are calling for an end to GBV against women and girls with disabilities. The three videos in English, Shona, and Ndebele communicate important messages to raise awareness on and end GBV against women and girls with disabilities. https://en.unesco.org/news/unesco-sardc-formulate-youth-development-and-social-innovations-programmes
