The paper explains the rationale for the private sector and the media to engage in preventing and combating violence against women (VAW) and to offer practical advice and good practice examples. Case studies and examples are drawn from a range of employers and organisations, which demonstrate how various interventions and governmental mechanisms can be used to tackle the effects of violence against women and raise awareness of gender-based violence.
