Fireside: Ending Sexual Violence. No Excuses. No Exceptions.

Fireside: Ending Sexual Violence. No Excuses. No Exceptions.

Sexual violence is never acceptable. So why do countries have laws that fail to criminalize marital rape? Why do police forces around the world ask what a woman was wearing? Why do communities blame the victim and excuse the perpetrator?

Because across the world, insufficient laws and bad practices allow sexual violence to be explained away, to be justified, to blame the victim, to be swept under the rug. 

At Equality Now, our work to end sexual violence focuses on the importance of:

  • Feminist laws
  • Victim-centered law enforcement
  • Compassionate and inclusive communities

As 16 Days of Activism draws to a close, join our Fireside Chat to hear from Equality Now’s global team on the challenges they’ve faced this year and the progress we’ve made, together with our partners, towards ending sexual violence.
