– 8 March 2018, Fordham University School of Law (NY) –
The speech was focused on the Goal no. 5 of the Sustainable Development Goals and Gender-Based violence (GBV).
Gender equality and gender equity are commonly used interchangeably but have different meanings. Same problems for violence against women and girls (VAW) and GBV.
GBV and VAW and girls are often used interchangeably in literature. However, there is a difference. GBV by definition is broader. GBV highlights the dimension of the violence. The term GBV refers to abuse inflicted upon an individual because of his or her gender.
