What's Gender-Based Violence?
Gender-Based Violence is one of the most prevalent human rights violations in the world. It knows no social, economic or national boundaries. Worldwide, an estimated one in three women will experience physical or sexual abuse in her lifetime. Gender-based violence undermines the health, dignity, security and autonomy of its victims, yet it remains shrouded in a culture of silence.
The logo of the Guardian Girls is designed and trademarked by the Koyamada International Foundation (KIF).
The meaning of the logo
