Rude Awakening: The complex global epidemic of violence facing young women and girls

Rude Awakening: The complex epidemic of violence young women and girls face in India and beyond

The International Center for Research on Women (ICRW) is pleased to present its first Passports to Progress event in support of its new campaign, Turning Point: Changing the Course for Adolescent Girls Worldwide.

A diverse panel of leading experts in the fields of gender, rights and development will discuss the many ways in which violence against women – especially young women and girls – in non-conflict settings has become a global epidemic.

Join us on the eve of International Women's Day for cocktails, hors d'oevres and a night of thought-provoking discussion.
