[The Elders Series] Global Leaders on Ending Violence Against Women and Girls

Finding Humanity

25-11-2021 • 33 mins

Ban Ki-moon, former UN Secretary-General, joins hosts Mary Robinson and Hazami Barmada to discuss the persistent, global injustice that is violence against women.

1.3 billion women and girls around the world—equivalent to the entire combined populations of North America and Europe—have experienced violence at some point in their lives. This has significant political, economic, and cultural consequences. In this episode, global leaders unpack this critical issue and address what is needed to end violence against women and girls.

Together, we explore how to tackle this injustice and answer the questions: How does increasing access to justice better safeguard women’s rights? Why is feminist leadership vital in advancing gender equality? And what role do men play in ending violence against women and in challenging misogyny?
