About the Book

Gender-based violence is one of the most widespread forms of human rights abuse and a violation of human dignity that affects millions of women, men and children regardless of their social status, cultural or religious background and civil status or sexual orientation. What is special with gender-based violence is that it often happens in private but it does not mean that it should be treated as a private issue. The prevention of gender-based violence and the protection and assistance to the victims is, ultimately, the responsibility of the public authorities while the civil society also has a very important role. Legal action, however essential, cannot be the only response if we want to reduce and eradicate such forms of violence. The values of human rights, non-violence and gender equality can be neither imposed nor simply advertised; they have to be accepted and respected in real life. Only through combined efforts we can secure that the patterns of oppression and humiliation are not repeated from generation to generation. This book is designed in eight chapters on the basis of educational resources and field experiences, the manual on human rights activists and interviews of victims of gender violence. This book provides practitioners of human rights education with specific education tools and insights for a gender-sensitive approach to human rights education. We hope that practitioners and activists in human rights education will find in this book as an inspiration and resources to help them in their work.
