Abstract

Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) is particularly high in Bangladesh and seems to have been made worse during the COVID-19 pandemic, even though Bangladesh ranks first in South Asia in reducing gender gaps. Laila Rahman, Janice Du Mont, Patricia O’Campo and Gillian Einstein took an ‘intersectional’ approach – examining the interplay of several factors working together to keep IPV alive – and present their main findings below. They argue that effective implementation of gender-equity measures, coupled with a high quality of education rather than its mere spread, would put women in the driving seat for the creation of a gender-equitable and violence-free society.
