TANSEEQ for Ending GBV in Lebanon, Issue 5

Gender Based Violence (GBV) is a global phenomenon manifested in every aspect of life, including education settings where many girls, and sometimes boys, can undergo violence. It is related to power inequalities between sexes and targets particularly women and girls. Despite the widespread nature of the phenomenon, it is rather under-researched and most of the times unreported, owing to a culture of tolerance of GBV and out of fear of stigmatizing the victim.
