Title: Addressing Violence in Canada is about Addressing Gender Inequality 

Speaker: Dr. Wendy Craig

Description: Target 16.2 of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is to “end abuse, exploitation, trafficking, and all forms of violence against, and torture of, children. Globally, it is estimated that up to 1 billion children aged 2–17 years, have experienced physical, sexual, or emotional violence or neglect in the past year. Sadly, Canada is not faring well on this SDG goal.  Violence against children has lifelong impacts on health and well-being of children, families, communities, and nations.  By the end of this presentation, you will understand the prevalence rates of different forms of violence in children and youth; and how gender inequality relates to differences in these rates.  Lastly, I will discuss what are the next steps needed in Canada to prevent violence in children and youth. Fostering safe, nurturing, and equitable relationships in youth will lead to improve health, ensure a safer and fairer world for all and promote sustainable development.
