Join UN Women Australia and i=Change on 16 August 2023 for an exclusive in-depth discussion highlighting the plight of women in Papua New Guinea, an epicentre for violence against women.
Just four kilometres from Australia, Papua New Guinea is sadly home to some of the highest rates of violence against women in the world, with nearly 60% of women and girls aged 15-49 having experienced some form of physical or sexual violence – almost twice that of the global average.
UN Women Australia is proud to partner with i=Change to draw attention to the plight of women in Papua New Guinea and introduce you to the people working to make lasting change through programs on the ground.
Join our CEO, Simone Clarke on 16 August as she speaks to i=Change CEO and Founder, Jeremy Meltzer about his recent trip to the Papua New Guinea highlands, where he saw first-hand how UN Women programs are making a difference in the lives of women and girls.
When: 12:00 pm, 16 August 2023
