Here at the British Red Cross, we know from our work at home and overseas that there is still much to be done. Around the world, we support women and girls who have been through unimaginable traumas.
Did you know that in Niger, West Africa, 3 out of 5 women have suffered some sort of sexual gender-based violence in their lives?
