Stopping the Violence Against Women: The Movement from Intervention to Prevention

General Material

The document focuses on engaging survivors and communities as "key assets," giving them the voice and power to inform policy decisions more effectively. The Ms. Foundation has identified three large themes under which this goal may be accomplished:

  1. "Prevention of gender violence requires examination of gender roles.
  2. Prevention of gender violence begins with the prevention of child abuse.
  3. Prevention of gender violence involves the development of community-centered strategies."

The document includes fifteen strategies for moving from intervention to prevention that support the identifed vision for social change.
