ONE VOICE FOR EQUALITY

Against gender based violence faced by Venezuelan women and LGTBIQ+ people


Venezuelan women, girls and LGTBIQ+ people seeking international protection are most impacted by gender based violence, after fleeing the massive human rights violations  that being committed in their country.

According to a 2019 UNHCR report, discrimination, xenophobia and sexualized stereotypes of Venezuelan women often leave them exposed to violence and sexual harassment in host countries. On the other hand, gay and transgender people are among the groups most at risk along the route.

The inequality these people already have to face, is exacerbated by being outside of their country, with no protection from gender based violence. 

This page is a space to learn more about their situation, take action and share resources that can reduce inequalities and stereotypes to tackle gender based violence experienced by women and the LGTBIQ+ community in countries such as Colombia, Peru and Ecuador.
