It is time once again for another edition of the AWAVA Weekly Round-Up. This week, we have highlighted links which include a variety of responses to violence against women from all different sections of the community. We can take this opportunity to learn from both good and bad responses to gender-based violence and gender inequality. Violence exists on a spectrum, and it is the responsibility of every member of society to oppose violence against women in whatever form it takes.
