This type of violence is often used to maintain power and control over another person, and is most often directed at women and girls.

Gender-based violence is an unfortunate reality of life, with many women and girls around the world facing violence on a daily basis. 2017 to 2019 have seen some especially notable examples of gender-based violence in many countries, most of which have received significant media attention.
In India, a woman was raped and killed on a highway in 2018, sparking global outrage. The woman, a 25-year-old veterinarian, had been returning home from work late at night when she was attacked. Four men, all of whom had been known to her, kidnapped her, gang-raped her and then strangled her to death. The incident spurred massive protests in India and reinforced the prevalence of gender-based violence in the country.
In 2019, another high-profile example of gender-based violence occurred in South Africa, where a popular university student was kidnapped and brutally murdered. University student, Precious Ramabulana, a 21-year-old mentally disabled woman, was abducted outside her university in Limpopo and was found two days later nearly naked, beaten and stabbed more than eighty times. Her murder sparked a national outcry, and several marches took place in protest of the lack of protection afforded to women and girls in South Africa.
Finally, in 2017, a young woman in Nigeria known as Ochanya Ogbanje was the victim of years of physical and sexual abuse at the hands of her uncle and his son. It was only after her case went viral due to the extensive media coverage that she was able to receive justice. Sadly, her case is all too common, especially in Nigeria, where thousands of girls and women are victims of gender-based violence each year.
In addition to the physical and emotional trauma of being the victim of gender-based violence, survivors often have limited access to justice and medical care, especially in countries with weak legal systems. Worldwide, these cases highlight the need to further address gender-based violence and the way it is treated. These recent examples serve as evidence of the urgent need to tackle gender-based violence in order to make the world a safer place for all.
