Combating Gender-based Violence (GBV) through Social Justice on College Campuses as Led by CPSW

Publication Date: May 19, 2023

In this resource, the reader learns that gender-based violence (GBV) covers a vast range of misconduct—verbal and physical actions, sexual harassment, sexual assault, and rape. Sexual violence is more prevalent than other kinds of crimes for college women. Research shows that 25% of college women are sexually assaulted while in college; and 59% experienced harassing behavior. In order to help address GBV on campuses, eGirl Power, a nonprofit organization, has partnered with the Center for Public Safety in DC to create the Center of Public Safety for Women (CPSW).
