Key Terms in the Prevention of Violence Against Women

People working to prevent violence against women use a range of specific phrases, acronyms and terms. Many of these terms are similar, have overlapping meanings and are often used interchangeably, depending on the context.

DVRCV produced a glossary to help people working in primary prevention work to understand and distinguish between some of these key terms.

The glossary is available from the Partners in Prevention website.
