Violence against women and girls is a human rights violation. However, one in three women worldwide experience physical or sexual violence mostly by an intimate partner or close relative (unwomen.org).

Since the outbreak of COVID-19, a parallel dark pandemic has been growing. Emerging data shows that all types of violence against women, particularly domestic violence, has not only increased but also intensified and affects victims physically, emotionally, and beyond. The global increase of this situation has put a strain on already struggling health facilities, and essential services and shelters for domestic violence have reached maximum capacity. Additionally, there are economic instability implications on the individuals and society caused by increased medical bills, loss of income due to lost productivity from paid work, and disrupted education.

In partnership with African Renaissance Diaspora Network (ARDN) Red Card Campaign (#Redcardpledge) and in support of the UN Sustainable Development Goal 5, Webster University (#WebsterGhanaPledgesRED) is engaging in conversations to raise awareness and address the violence against women and girls in COVID-19 response efforts.

Join us at this educative virtual lecture as we thoroughly interrogate the Economic Impact of Domestic Violence.
