Shifting gender and social norms to address SRGBV: strategies and promising approaches

Gender-based discrimination, harmful social and gender norms and stereotypes are drivers of violence that are exacerbated during a pandemic. Ensuring protection from physical, psychological and sexual violence remains a critical part of providing a safe and gender-responsive learning environment, particularly as schools reopen. In this context, and grounded in the global campaign 16 Days of Activism to End Gender-Based Violence, panellists from UNESCO Eswatini, Concern Worldwide, VVOB - Education for Development, Education International and Gender at Work will explore issues relating to shifting social and gender norms in communities and in schools.
