The first comprehensive national survey on gender -based violence (GBV) in Grenada revealed that 29% of all the women experienced at least one form of violence in line with the global average of violence committed against women which is 1 in 3 women will experience physical and or sexual violence during their lifetime.

Former Prime Minister of Grenada, Dr. Keith Mitchell delivering features remarks to launch the hub said:” Sisters and brothers, violence against women and girls hurts the moral fabric of our society”

It becomes of great importance to the women to attend this event to curb the physical violence against women and girls and elevate the safety of women and girls in Grenada.

The government of Grenada is very optimistic about improving the growth of the safety of women and girls in the state and fulfilling the conditions events like VOICES are being scheduled.
