Gender-Based Violence (GBV) comic

May 11, 2020

This comic book tells us the stories of four different people. Each story helps us to better understand the three levels of gender-based violence, namely:

• Individual Oppression: Each of the people in our story have been subjected to gender-based violence as individuals on a personal level

• Collective/Social Oppression: Together in a society our attitudes and behaviour towards different groups of people causes everyone to suffer from gender-based violence in our communities.

• Structural/Institutional Oppression: The society we live in and the structures that support this society form the roots of gender-based violence at a broad socio-economic level.
