Raise awareness

Your voice is a powerful tool for creating change. Use it to tell your friends about the Stop the Violence campaign and speak out for girls’ rights. We want people to not only know about the issue but to understand it, so that they can go on to take action. Find out more.

stv education


In partnership with UN Women, we've developed a non-formal education curriculum to support girls, boys, young women and men to understand the root causes of violence, identify forms, understand their rights and claim those rights and end violence against girls.


Speak Out

Girl Guides and Girl Scouts' standing in the community means we're in a great position to lobby to end violence. Lobbying is a form of advocacy, sometimes easier to think of as "speaking out" directly to decision-makers, with specific demands in mind.

Take Action

Whether you are an individual or a Member Organisation, we can support you in developing your own campaign to stop violence against girls and young women. Take action to solve the root causes of violence in your community and create social change.

Violence against girls and young women is a sensitive topic to discuss and can be upsetting or distressing for some people. Therefore, all work that is carried out within the Stop the Violence campaign should be done safely.
