The IGWG organizes regular in-person and virtual events where members from around the world can learn from and connect with each other. These events may be thematic, such as a focus on recent research in the GBV field, or dedicated to capacity building, like how to use film for social and behavior change communication. Our annual IGWG Plenary creates space for members to meet in person and provide feedback on the network as a whole each year.
Presentations and recordings of IGWG events are available online so you can find past events you missed or want to revisit. The presentation materials are also available.

Anita Raj on Gender-Based Violence in India
March 17, 2015 @ 8:30 am - 11:30 am
On March 17, 2015, Dr. Anita Raj of the Center for Gender Equity and Health at the University of California, San Diego spoke to the IGWG about her ongoing research on gender-based violence in India. She described two recently published studies: “Parent and Adolescent Social Norms related to Girls’ Marital Choice, Spousal Violence, and Family Planning in Rural Maharashtra, India” and “Understanding Rape in India using Crime in India Reports.” Dr. Raj’s research continues to add to our understanding of the transmission of violence norms and of the dynamics of violence in India.
