Observance of the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women

Human RightsObservance of the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women

On the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, the United States commits  to marshaling our full range of policy and diplomatic resources to preventing and responding to gender-based violence around the world.

To continue making progress toward the global eradication of gender-based violence, the United States is pairing the updated 2022 U.S. Strategy to Prevent and Respond to Gender-BasedViolence Globally with concrete, survivor-centered actions, utilizing the $250 million in foreign assistance Congress appropriated in Fiscal Year 2023 for efforts to prevent and respond to gender-based violence. Furthermore, the Department recently awarded a new $3 million program to prevent, mitigate, and respond to technology-facilitated gender-based violence  in South and Central Asia.

The prevalence of gender-based violence is alarmingly high, leaving no country, society, or socioeconomic group unscathed. Working with our partners, the United States will continue to work for a future free from gender-based violence.
