About From Freedom to Fear: Ending Violence Against Women

Worldwide, at least one in three women are victims of violence. It is the most pervasive human rights violation on earth -- present in every country, every culture, every religion, every class.

But around the globe, women are joining forces and speaking out, advocating for new laws, and developing successful strategies to eradicate gender-based violence. The challenges are many. But the mission is clear: bring an end to the culture of violence and forge a new path to a culture of peace and human rights for all.

In WLP’s new film, leading experts and activists from across the globe discuss the root causes of gender-based violence, share strategies to combat it, and provide inspiring accounts of the important milestones already achieved through the international women’s movement.

“People make culture. And people can change culture… There are good things in culture that can be used to bring about change, and this change must be towards human rights.”

– Thoraya Obaid, Former United Nations Undersecretary General, & Women’s Learning Partnership Board Chair
