Dear Deeply Readers,

Welcome to the archives of News Deeply’s Women & Girls Hub. While we paused regular publication of the site on January 22, 2018, and transitioned our coverage to Women’s Advancement Deeply, we are happy to serve as an ongoing public resource on the Arctic. We hope you’ll enjoy the reporting and analysis that was produced by our dedicated community of editors contributors.

We continue to produce events and special projects while we explore where the on-site journalism goes next. If you’d like to reach us with feedback or ideas for collaboration you can do so at [email protected]

Gender-Based Violence

Exploring the obstacles and solutions to keeping women and girls safe from violence during conflict, on the streets and at home.

An estimated one in three women around the world will experience physical or sexual violence at least once in their lifetime. Whether the violence is out in the open – such as conflict rape – or behind closed doors, as with domestic abuse, the problem is prevalent and urgent. Through the stories of victims, survivors, activists and policymakers, we examine the obstacles and solutions to keeping women and girls safe from violence.
