What difference are Feminist Foreign Policies making to ending Violence Against Women and Girls?

Front page of the policy brief
Date published

The report highlights the increasing global adoption of Feminist Foreign Policies (FFPs) and Feminist Development Policies (FDPs) since Sweden's pioneering initiative in 2014. Despite growing support, the world remains off track to eliminate violence against women and girls (VAWG) by 2023, a critical barrier to achieving Sustainable Development Goals. The brief assesses how existing FFPs and gender strategies address VAWG prevention and response, emphasizing the need for systemic change beyond rhetoric. While recognizing the potential impact of FFPs and related strategies, the report calls for increased implementation, resource allocation, evidence-based approaches, and accountability to effectively address VAWG.
