Gender-Based Violence cuts across geographical, cultural, social, and economic factors and is a threat to human security in Nigeria and globally. Human security is not the absence of conflict but “The right of people to live in freedom and dignity, free from poverty and despair…with an equal opportunity to enjoy all their rights and fully develop their human potential” (UN General Assembly, 2012).

Gender-Based violence refers to “harmful acts directed at an individual based on their gender. It is rooted in gender inequality, the abuse of power and harmful norms. Gender-based violence (GBV) is a serious violation of human rights and a life-threatening health and protection issue” (UNHRC).
