Gender-based violence (GBV), including violence against girls and women, refers to harmful acts directed at a person based on their sex, gender identity, or perceived adherence to socially defined norms of masculinity and femininity. It is characterized by the use or threat of physical, sexual, psychological, and other forms of control or abuse, which can occur in public and private settings, such as digital and online spaces, schools, the home, workplaces, and transit.
The global fast-spreading coronavirus and the ensuing country lockdowns and curfews have started to undermine the efforts towards achieving the 2030 agenda, causing devastating effects on families, economies, and women in particular. As people are required to spend more time at home, the chances increase to be exposed to GBV within the household. This is supported by evidence as emerging data shows that violence against women and girls has intensified since the outbreak of COVID-19.
During lockdowns and curfews, it has been especially difficult for women to reach gender-based violence (GBV) service providers as they face additional reporting barriers including: ability to move, limited access to mobile phones, and lack of privacy. To ensure females are granted access to quality and timely GBV services, barriers to accessing services and information need to be reduced
