(How) Can We Reduce Violence Against Women by 50% over the Next 30 Years?
Understanding what drives and enables change
PLOS Medicine Whilst ostensibly ambitious, several high-income countries, including the United States, have reduced rates of some forms of violence by 50% or more over a very short period of time, and such reductions are supported by historical trends of reduced homicide over several centuries in several European countries –. There is no real evidence, however, that violence against women is reducing in low- and middle-income countries," writes Rachel Jewkes for PLOS Medicine.
