For 10—14 year-olds, we measured violence experienced either in the past 6 months or ever using a different set of questions from those used for 15—22 year-olds. Among 15—22 year-olds we measured prevalence of violence, experienced in the past 12 months, using World Health Organization WHO definitions for violence typologies. Predictors of violence were identified using multivariable logit models.

In Southern Africa, gender-based violence against women and girls VAWG is a serious and widespread violation of human rights. Women and girls are severely restricted in their access to social, political and economic life. The prevalence of VAWG in these countries is high by international comparison. Furthermore, it is widely accepted in society. In particular, domestic violence at the hands of a partner is encouraged by the prevailing social norms. At the same time, the institutional capacities for implementing and coordinating violence-prevention schemes have not yet been sufficiently expanded.

Standing Committee for promoting Women in Science Women in India face several challenges in moving up the academic and administrative ladder due to systemic barriers and structural factors. Gender equality in scientific laboratories and institutions of higher education is not only about numbers but also about various micro and macro level factors operating at institutional level. There exist various policies and enabling environment in different institutions in India but a common approach or guiding principles to bridge the gender gap is still lacking. This clearly demonstrates a need for multi stakeholder interventions. While gender equality in science is an important consideration, it is also in the larger interest of scientific progress and society.
Reporting to Authorities: Girls’ and Young Women’s Experiences of Reporting Street Harassment
Every year we ask over 2, girls and young women to tell us how they feel about their everyday lives. This year has been like no other since we started the survey in We began our fieldwork before lockdown in early March and finished it in April, after schools closed due to Covid This means our data spans two different realities. Yet some themes remain the same: girls and young women tell us they face persistent and unfair barriers to being happy and confident.
When we do, everyone wins. Because when one girl finds her power to make different choices that change her life, it inspires others to do so too.

Access to sexual and reproductive health SRH information and services is critically important for the health of women, adolescents and their children, and has a ripple effect on the health of society as a whole. Four in five adolescent pregnancies happen within marriage. As a result, they face a greater risk of maternal mortality and are too often denied education and economic opportunity. Population Services International PSI has a proven model to change the conversation around contraception by addressing the contextual challenges that drive adolescent pregnancy in early marriage.

Women and girls, everywhere, must have equal rights and opportunity, and be able to live free of violence and discrimination. In short, all the SDGs depend on the achievement of Goal 5. For example, discriminatory laws need to change and legislation adopted to proactively advance equality. Yet 49 countries still lack laws protecting women from domestic violence, while 39 bar equal inheritance rights for daughters and sons. Eliminating gender-based violence is a priority, given that this is one of the most pervasive human rights violations in the world today.

The NIMH encourages multidisciplinary research projects to examine biological, social, cultural and behavioral contributions of sex and gender influences on mental health and illness e.
