5 Poems About Gender-based Violence

According to the World Health Organization, one in three women will experience gender-based violence in her lifetime. This is a staggering statistic, and it’s time to start speaking out about it and make a change. 

These five poems are powerful and poignant reminders of the importance of breaking the silence around gender-based violence. Each poem tells a unique story, but they all share a common message: that we must work together to create a world free from violence against women and girls. 

Conclusion

In the end, we should all remember that gender-based violence does not have a single cause. Despite the heavy subject matter, these poems are our voices; we hope they will give you the strength to speak out against all forms of oppression that violate your body. And we hope they inspire others to do the same. 

Speak up! All men must be held accountable for their actions; all survivors should know justice is possible- let’s work together to create a world free from gendered violence everywhere.
