New Report On Violent Extremism and Gender-Based Violence


New research shows not only a direct link between violence against women and state security, but also that violence against women and gender relations have a causal effect on state stability.

Where male interests trump female interests, conflict is resolved through violence, and violence is met with impunity, this dynamic becomes the template for dealing with ethnic, religious, cultural, racial, and ideological differences in society as a whole. Without interventions and prevention, the society becomes mired in discrimination, intolerance, and a propensity toward violence.

There are cost effective, proven solutions to disrupt this trajectory, improve security, and prevent the spread of violence. Women – and how they are treated – are critical to security. Read our new report and take action.
