The Challenge

In the highlands of PNG, up to 93% women experience violence regularly - even on a daily basis. Sexual harassment is also extremely common in markets, where women's ability to do business is crucial for the strength of their communities. When women are safe from violence, entire communities and economies flourish.

UN Women is working to meet the needs of women, train male community leaders to understand and communicate that violence against women is a crime, and provide skills training so women can earn an income and support their families.
