Violence Against Women and Girls

Education sector brief

This Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG) Education Sector Brief explores the links between gender-based violence and education. As the brief describes, experiencing violence in schools can negatively impact girls' enrolment and the quality of the education they receive. Evidence suggests that sexual harassment is widespread in educational settings in many parts of the world. Children who have witnessed violence at home or experienced violence have lower educational attainment.
