Interactive Workshop on “Violence against Women (VAW) and Gender Based Violence (GBV)”

Violence against women (VAW) and gender-based violence (GBV) are human rights violations and two distinct phenomena. The terms are often used interchangeably, but they have different meanings. Both are systematic and widespread at all levels of society in developed and developing countries.Gender stereotypes compounded and intersecting with other stereotypes have disproportionate negative effects on certain groups of women, such as women from minority or indigenous groups, women with disabilities, women from lower castes groups or with lower economic status, and LGBT community. Gender stereotyping is wrongful when it results in violations of human rights and fundamental freedoms. In fact, wrongful gender stereotyping is a frequent cause of VAW and GBV.

The overall purpose of this workshop is to increase participant’s knowledge and understanding of the concepts of VAW, gender and sexuality, and GBV. In addition, it will be an opportunity to show the different forms of VAW and GBV in three different continents (Southeast Asia, Europe, and North America). In particular, the workshop will cover, and outline GBV cases in Thailand, Cambodia, the USA, and Italy. The workshop will examine how gender stereotypes can be addressed and how society can engage in combating GBV.
