Profiles in resilience: The experiences of women seeking shelter in Pakistan.

A/prof. Filomena Critelli

Gender-based violence is the most wide-spread and socially tolerated of human rights violations (United Nations Population Fund, 2005). lt compromises the health of women and serves as a barrier to the full participation and capacity development of women throughout the world (United Nations Development Program, 2003, UNDP, 2006, wHo, 2005, United Nations Population Fund, 2000). Abuse of rights and violence against women and girls is widespread in Pakistan (Amnesty lnternational, 2002, Jilani and Ahmed, 2004). Gender violence in Pakistan takes a variety of forms, some of which are similar to the West, and others more specific to the culture (Hassan, 1995, Jilani and Ahmed, 2004, Amnesty lnternational, 1999, 2002).

Recorded: October 2009, Dubrovnik - Cavtat, Croatia.
