Violence against women and girls is the most pervasive human rights violation rooted in gender inequality and discrimination, unequal power relations, and harmful social norms.
This ground-breaking three-year global study on gender-based online
violence against women journalists represents collaborative research
covering 15 countries. It is the most geographically, linguistically, and ethnically
diverse scoping of the crisis conducted up until late 2022. T
The gap in the prevalence and reporting of sexual harassment needs to be addressed through effi cient redressal mechanisms. Evidence from Indian cities shows that while the prevalence of sexual harassment on public transport and in public spaces is high, reporting, and subsequent actions taken for redressal are perceived to be low.
This report, by Arup, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), and the University of Liverpool, offers a novel approach and a clear methodology to directly engage women in decision-making processes, incorporating their needs, concerns, and ideas across all aspects of urban planning and development.
This annual survey of over 4,000 young women, over 1,000 young men and over 900 HR decision makers reveals the extent
of the financial difficulties young women are facing in 2022 as they come out of a pandemic and into a cost of living crisis.
“Progress on the Sustainable Development Goals: The gender snapshot 2022” presents the latest evidence on gender equality across all 17 Goals, calling out the long road ahead to achieve gender equality. It emphasizes the interlinkages among the goals, the pivotal force gender equality plays in driving progress across the SDGs, and women and girls’ central role in leading the way forward.
We examine the impact of establishing women police stations (WPS) on reporting of genderbased violence. Using administrative crime data and exploiting staggered implementation
across Indian cities, we find that the opening of WPS is associated with an increase in police
reports of crimes against women of 29 percent, a result driven by domestic violence.
The stubbornly low and declining level of labor force participation rate (LFPR) of Indian women has prompted a great deal of attention with a focus on factors constraining women's labour supply. Using 12 rounds of a high frequency household panel survey, we demonstrate volatility in Indian women's labour market engagement, as they exit and (re)enter the labor force multiple times over short period for reasons unrelated to marriage, child-birth, or change in household income. We demonstrate how these frequent transitions exacerbate the issue of measurement of female LFPR.
