Combating Gender Based Violence

USAID combats gender-based violence (GBV) in Pakistan through its Gender Equity Program (GEP), which supports local activities that expand women’s knowledge of and ability to exercise their rights and access justice.  GEP is training judicial officers to better handle GBV complaints.  The program is also helping women’s shelters provide legal aid, counseling, and technical and vocational skills, and connecting women to potential employers.  USAID is providing life skills training for GBV survivors and working with employers and female workers to implement the 2010 Protection Against Harassment of Women at the Workplace Act.
