Rejecting ‘cultural’ justifications for violence against women: Strategies for women’s rights advocates.

Abstract

The aim of this Strategy Paper is to contribute to the implementation of the UN General Assembly’s Resolution A/RES/61/1433 and to the Secretary-General’s Campaign to End Violence Against Women by focusing on how to reject ‘cultural’ justifications for violence against women. This Paper discusses two ways of doing this:

(1) By strategizing around key opportunities that have emerged in the UN system

(2) By countering ‘cultural’ justifications for violence against women at micro, meso and macro levels.
