International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women

HIGHLIGHT — Violence against women continues to be an issue across the Caribbean and Latin America, with rates ranging from 30% in Trinidad & Tobago to 67% in Suriname.

Policy-makers and funders have taken interest in turning the tide, recognising the link between domestic violence and economic growth, peace and security. We present the PBS documentary Becoming Papa by the Brazilian NGO Promundo, showing what has been done to address rates of domestic violence, by targeting interventions to men.
