Unidas project on Violence against Women in Latin America: the multiple facets of a pervasive issue

Nora Löhr • 7 December 2020

How to tackle a problem which is widely veiled, avoided by the spotlights, and even normalized in some contexts? With a call to “Orange the World”, the United Nations launches a 16 days campaign of activism every year to inspire and prompt societies all over the world to put into action initiatives to build a better future free of violence for  women and girls. In lieu of this important goal, and the work that Data-Pop Alliance and Unidas have been doing for the past six months across Latin America to fight gender-based violence, this piece looks in depth at the factors that drive this phenomenon, particularly within the context of the current pandemic.
