Globally, women and girls face significant inequality and remain under-represented in all spheres of life. One third of women worldwide have faced physical violence in their lifetime.
Throughout the countries in which Trócaire works, we:
- Advocate for laws that protect women and respect their rights and dignity,
- Offer support to those exposed to abuse and work with men and women to prevent gender-based violence (GBV),
- Help women to achieve their basic needs and to earn a living;
- And work to build women’s leadership and support their equal participation in decision-making at all levels.
