Futures Without Violence

Open Square  

The Global Women's Institute of The George Washington University



At every stage in a girl’s life – from childhood until she becomes an adult – she faces opportunities and obstacles that may impact her ability to go to school and access quality education. Will she suffer assault at home or school? Will she be married off at the age of 12? Will she be kidnapped at school and trafficked into labor or sex slavery? Or will she have the good fortune to gain safe passage through primary, secondary, and onto higher education?  

The truth is that violence can be a critical deterrent to education. But fortunately, we know that education can be a critical deterrent to violence. When girls and women learn free from violence and trauma, they are better prepared to participate fully in every aspect of society, economy, and government.  
 

Please join us as we shadow the life of a girl from childhood through adulthood – tracking the obstacles she may encounter, and exploring the solutions that exist to ensure quality education, enhance learning, and prevent sexual assault and gender-based violence. Our multi-media program will include presentations, panels, new research findings and interactive participant engagement.
