Two decades of studies affirm that exposure to violence in childhood increases the likelihood that an individual will experience or perpetrate intimate partner violence (IPV) in adulthood, as well as other forms of violence. Exposure to violence in childhood is by far the strongest predictor of whether a man uses violence later in life.

Equimundo, in partnership with Together for Girls, The Global Partnership to End Violence Against Children, Sonke Gender Justice, Futures Without Violence, SVRI, the World Health Organization (WHO), UNICEF, and the UN Girls’ Education Initiative (UNGEI) hosted a webinar on preventing intergenerational cycles of violence that explores how we can act on the evidence before us to put in place interventions that address trauma as a way to prevent future violence and improve the well-being of women and children.
