This report, excerpted from a CRS Report from 2008, outlines the causes, types, prevalence, and consequences of violence against women around the world. It describes examples of US activities that address violence against women or include anti-violence components (without assessing their scope or outcomes), and briefly notes recent United Nations and other international efforts, noting that collaboration with international organizations is important. It presents other key policy considerations, such as the scope and effectiveness of current programs, integrating programs into US assistance and foreign policy mechanisms, and strengthening US government coordination of international anti-violence activities.
