Addressing Violence & Normalizing Equality


While many local women's organizations shut down amid the pandemic, others, including many in armed conflict contexts, developed innovative strategies to address increased domestic violence (DV) and rising authoritarianism. This project collates these strategies and develops new technology to provide struggling grassroots women's organizations in 55 countries with new programming to adapt DV policies to the Covid-19 environment and respond to rising authoritarianism. The objective is to prevent, address, and document domestic violence and help normalize democratic values and gender equality in programming designed to fly under the authoritarian radar.
