Gender-Based Violence (GBV) is both a human rights as well as a public health concern. Gender Based Violence is a persistent and universal problem occurring in every culture and social groupings. GBV, mostly perpetrated against women has been the most pervasive yet least recognized human rights abuse in the world. Therefore, gender-based violence is not exclusively a woman's concern. It is both a cause and consequence of gender perceptions. GBV has shifted the focus from women as victims to gender and the unequal power relationships between women and men created and maintained by gender stereotypes as the basic underlying cause of violence against women. From the foregoing the Gender and Affirmative Action Implementation Centre, Kenyatta University is organizing an International GBV Conference, the first of its kind, aimed at expanding knowledge about the magnitude of GBV, its impact and the factors underlying the experience and consequences of GBV in an effort to reduce its spread and effects. All sessions will be held at Kenyatta University.
