“Violence against women and girls is an international phenomenon that current systems, treaties, and institutions have been unable to sufficiently mitigate, much less eradicate. However, the global economy in which we now live provides an opportunity to collaborate on a new standard – and subsequent practices – that addresses the harm done by rampant gender-based violence and promotes the essential contribution that women and girls make to the health and prosperity of countries around the world. By harnessing the insights and talents of advocates, survivors, and change agents worldwide, this new norm would create a binding, universally applicable norm on violence against women that is culturally relevant, community-driven, and victim-centered in order to more effectively respond to, and ultimately eliminate, the problem altogether.”
