No Safe Place: A lifetime of violence for conflict-affected women and girls in South Sudan

In 2015, in collaboration with the International Rescue Committee (IRC) and CARE International UK (CIUK), the Global Women's Institute (GWI) launched a comprehensive study to understand the prevalence, types and patterns of violence against women and girls (VAWG) living in conflict-affected areas of South Sudan. The research is part of the United Kingdom’s Department for International Development’s (DfID) global program, What Works to Prevent Violence Against Women and Girls. Report to be released soon!

Please join us for the official U.S. launch of the report on November 29 at 2:30pm.
