UN Women | The Shadow Pandemic: Violence against women during COVID-19
- Globally, even before the COVID-19 pandemic began, 1 in 3 women experienced physical or sexual violence mostly by an intimate partner
- Emerging data shows an increase in calls to domestic violence helplines in many countries since the outbreak of COVID-19.
- Sexual harassment and other forms of violence against women continue to occur on streets, in public spaces and online.
- Survivors have limited information and awareness about available services and limited access to support services.
- In some countries, resources and efforts have been diverted from violence against women response to immediate COVID-19 relief.
- By September 2020, 48 countries had integrated prevention and response to violence against women and girls into COVID-19 response plans, and 121 countries had adopted measures to strengthen services for women survivors of violence during the global crisis, but more efforts are urgently needed
