Accelerating Action to End Violence Against Women and Girls

Sustainable Development Goal 5 recognizes that women’s and girls’ rights and well-being are central to the long-term welfare of humanity. Yet we have gained little ground in the effort to end violence against women and girls. This signature session will begin by setting the stage in terms of scale, scope and consequences: Despite rhetoric at all levels, violence against women continues in every country, and can increase in some conditions. Services and support remain inadequate. Access to justice is scant, and security for women and girls continues to be elusive. This session will take the discussion forward with the understanding that now is the time to make real change for women and girls.
