16 voices on abortion access for victims of gender-based violence

One in three women worldwide experiences gender-based violence. Ipas is dedicating 2018’s 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence—which runs from the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women (November 25) to Human Rights Day (December 10)—to 16 voices which highlight the importance of safe abortion access for survivors of gender-based violence. Explore the feature to learn about Ipas’s research on gender-based violence, the experiences of Rohingya refugees living in camps in Bangladesh, why training police on victims’ rights is essential, and more.
