GENDER BASED VIOLENCE

Gender equality and the empowerment of women are both essential to overcoming economic disparity within society. But in Zambia custom permits early marriage which can lead to teenage pregnancy and domestic violence as well as girl-children dropping out of school. When combined with the effects of the HIV pandemic in Zambia, overall progress is impaired.

The situation is made more difficult by the fact that many of Zambia's rural women do not live within close proximity of a police post and even those who do must cope with the fact that discussing personal matters with the police can be an intimidating.
