Over the years, violence against women and girls has remained one of the most prevalent human rights violation in the world. The United Nations defines violence against women as “any act of gender-based violence that results in, or is likely to result in, physical, sexual, or mental harm or suffering to women, including hreats of such acts, coercion or arbitrary deprivation of liberty, whether occurring in public or in private life”.
