Violence against Women and Girls

Violence against Women and Girls

One of TG’s more iconic magazine covers is that of the woman with a bruised face, a harrowing reflection of the suffering inflicted on victims of domestic abuse. Over the years, TG has frequently shone a spotlight onto the issue, through conferences, magazine articles and any other means in which we as an organisation can get involved.

As the years have gone on, TG has broadened its scope to speak out against all aspects of violence against women and girls, with domestic abuse being just one strand. Some - such as FGM - have arisen as their own mandates in recent years; those that do not fall under a specific heading will be addressed here.
