The Nabilan Prevention Toolkit Fact Sheet 3: Community-Led Approaches to Preventing Violence Against Women


As explained in Fact Sheet 1, one of the characteristics of effective approaches to ending violence against women and children is that these approaches are community-led. A complex web of social norms exists across all societies, specifically around gender, the acceptance of violence, and family privacy. It is, therefore, vital to use community-led processes to identify communities’ specific web and for communities themselves to develop approaches to end and replace these norms.
