Ground Truth Briefing | A Pandemic of Violence: A Global Discussion of COVID-19 and Gender-Based Violence

As governments around the world impose lockdowns and encourage social distancing to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus, a shadow pandemic has emerged. Reports of domestic and intimate-partner violence have spiked, and already femicide rates are rising in some parts of the world. Yet even as the pandemic has increased the incidence of violence, it has simultaneously hampered prevention and protection efforts, including reduced access to law enforcement, social services and healthcare for women.

Join the Wilson Center on May 28 from 2-3pm EDT for a global discussion of gender-based violence during the COVID-19 pandemic.
