Since the outbreak of COVID-19, emerging data and reports from those on the front lines, have shown that all types of violence against women and girls, particularly domestic violence, has intensified.
This is the Shadow Pandemic growing amidst the COVID-19 crisis and we need a global collective effort to stop it. As COVID-19 cases continue to strain health services, essential services, such as domestic violence shelters and helplines, have reached capacity. More needs to be done to prioritize addressing violence against women in COVID-19 response and recovery efforts.
SERAC-Bangladesh-Chattogram division is going to assemble a virtual session on “Sexual Assault Victims: We are together” to address all kinds of violence against women with concrete global actions during COVID19. The aim of the discussion is to take action to end gender based violence including physical, mental and sexual violence.
