On Saturday April 16, a 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck Ecuador killing hundreds of people, leaving thousands wounded and causing severe damage to infrastructure. Access to safe drinking water and storage, as well as shelter is urgently needed. With your help we can reach the most vulnerable populations with vital assistance.
What is Violence Against Women? Why does it happen? What does it have to do with development? What does Oxfam do to end violence against women? What does it mean to do that work with a transformative approach?
This guide is a resource for Oxfam staff to inform and inspire their work, and to share with partners. It can be read and consulted individually – or used for discussion with peers. The “candid question” and “exercise” boxes offer avenues for such reflexion and discussion. While the guide is directed towards internal Oxfam staff, it is available for external distribution as well.
This booklet was compiled by Michaela Raab. The guide was commissioned by the Oxfam Gender Justice Program Development and Support Group, which provides operational leadership and support to the development of gender justice programming and the strengthening of gender justice perspectives and processes in affiliate, global, regional and country programs.
