The Maputo Protocol sets a high bar for state responsibility in Africa regarding violence against women. So why are women's right not being resepected and why the number of victims still so high? It's time to do and demand change.

We are sorry to hear Cynthia Cockburn has died. She wrote this excellent piece on masculinity for us back in 2015. Her writing on refugees was vital - providing a space for women who are often ignored to be heard.
