Gender-based violence is a major public health and human rights problem throughout the world. This type of violence often happens behind closed doors. A girl needs a safe space to discuss experiences, violations and fears, and receive validation that her fears are okay. Furthermore, a girl needs to understand her legal rights. A team and trusted coaches can provide that environment.
We are currently producing a collaboratively authored interactive guideline that will promote best practices and also serve to connect activists doing the work on the ground. A preview of that material can be found at GirlSportGuides.org/GBV.
