    Breaking the Silence on Violence against Indigenous Girls, Adolescents and Young Women

    This study offers a unique opportunity to rally behind the UNiTE to End Violence against Women Campaign of the United Nations Secretary-General and to remain steadfast to the recommendations of his two 2006 global studies on violence against children and violence against women.
