No More Violence Against Women; the podcast of the WAVE Network.
In this podcast, WAVE voices are amplified to give insight on topics such as sexualised violence, online violence, femicides, violence against women with disabilities, youth activism, important legislation such as the Istanbul Convention, and more to highlight the different forms and dimensions of violence against women and girls.

Gender-based violence takes on many forms during conflicts and has devastating consequences for the survivors, families, communities, and the prospect of building lasting peace. In today’s podcast episode, Inessa Adilkhanyan from the Sexual Assault Crisis Center, a feminist organisation and WAVE member in Armenia, shares with us the gendered perspective of war and highlights how women’s specialist services are front and centre of the response to gender-based violence in times of crisis and peace. She also shares insight, as one of the four partners, on the new joint project of the WAVE Network and the OSCE on preventing and responding to gender-based violence during the war and in post-war settings.

The WAVE members involved in the project are the Sexual Assault Crisis Center (Yerevan, Armenia), Women Fund Sukhumi (Kutaisi and Tbilisi, Georgia), Foundation United Women Banja Luka (Banja Luka, Bosnia & Herzegovina), and Centre “Women’s Perspectives” (Lviv, Ukraine).

The project aims to fill the gap on how to meaningfully support survivors of violence and civil society organizations in conflict and post-conflict areas.  Based on the expertise of women’s organizations, a toolkit was launched during the conference on preventing and responding to gender-based violence during the war and in post-war settings to not only present the harm and challenges posed by conflicts, but also to document promising first-hand practices with concrete examples from our four WAVE members.

The toolkit „preventing and responding to GBV during the war and in post-war settings is available HERE.
