In November 2015 the UN launched its new joint framework on the prevention of violence against women. WAGGGS and UN Women's Voices against Violence curriculum is a unique prevention tool that uses non-formal education to challenge gender stereotypes and say no to violence. This event will show how the curriculum fits into this wider framework and encourage Member States to support this transformative initiative.
