Violence against Women in Country X
Violence against women and girls is a major public health and human rights problem in Country X. Women who are poorly educated and economically dependent on their male partners are the most vulnerable. Sexual violence is also a major problem, with men being the most common perpetrators of rape and women, the victims. Sexual violence is associated with a range of health risk-taking behaviors among men, including having more sexual partners, alcohol and drug use, and exchanging gifts or services for sex. These behaviors are rooted in cultural norms regarding masculinity, male honor, and male sexual entitlement, an ideology that encourages male aggressiveness, dominance, and control of women, and attitudes towards gender relations. Girls and women are considered to be subordinate to boys and men and wives are expected to obey their husbands. Addressing violence against women and girls (VAW/G) is part of the government’s commitment to eliminating gender inequalities.
Nature and Incidence of Gender-Based Violence

  • One in four women aged 15-49 have experienced physical intimate partner violence.

  • Physical and psychological violence is most commonly reported. In 81% of reported cases, women report both of these forms of violence.

  • Women report sexual violence in less than 15% of all reported cases. Researchers surmise that this is due to severe underreporting.

  • Rape largely affects children and young women, with 40% of all survivors being under the age of 18 and 16% under 12

  • First sex is often coerced. A recent national study reports a prevalence of 24%. Those reporting forced first sex were twice as likely to report a subsequent sexual victimization.

  • Friends, neighbors and acquaintances are the most common perpetrators of rape of adolescents.
