When a woman experiences violence, who will most likely be her first point of contact?


In a world where violence against women and girls remains endemic, only 1 in 10 of the survivors approaches the police, and only 4 in 10 reach out for help. Those who do reach out are more likely to seek support from women they see as trustworthy and empowered, often survivors of violence themselves, who are working with small civil society and women’s rights organizations embedded in their communities and dedicated to ending violence against women and girls.

Listen now to “Small and Mighty!”, a podcast produced by the UN Trust Fund to End Violence against Women, focused on the crucial role played by small organizations working to end violence against women and girls, on their inspiring work to lead transformative change despite limited resources and major challenges, on their resourcefulness, flexibility and achievements for women and girls around the world.

Five episodes. Eighteen organizations. Decades of feminist-led work at community level.
