What progress has been made towards ending violence against women worldwide? Violence against women is a violation of human rights, a barrier to women’s active citizenship, and a fundamental constraint to the eradication of poverty. When governments meet at the UN Commission on the Status of Women in March 2013 their commitment is urgently needed to expedite the implementation of existing frameworks to eliminate all forms of violence against women. This Oxfam policy paper outlines a proposal for a comprehensive international action plan that addresses this issue politically, with time-bound targets and explicit accountability mechanisms – a roadmap to fast-track existing agreements.
