Overview

  • Monitoring the implementation of laws on violence against women and girls is done by measuring the government’s response to the violence, both in terms of action and inaction by the government.  The government’s compliance with international standards and with the laws of the state should be documented and analyzed. The response of law enforcement, the legal community, the judiciary, and medical and social service agencies should be documented and analyzed. Monitors should also analyze public awareness and opinion regarding the violence and the law.
  • Monitoring is accomplished by obtaining and analyzing quantitative and qualitative data, using indicators of gender-based acts of physical, sexual, or psychological violence against women and girls.
