Created: 11/04/2023 +


Gender-based violence (GBV) and sexual gender-based violence (SGBV) occur throughout Colombia, and the armed conflict has reinforced the occurrence and risks for girls, women, and the LGBTQ+ community, especially in conflict-affected areas in indigenous territories. According to UN Women, the most prevalent form of violence against women is physical or sexual intimate partner violence. There is a general understanding that GBV and SGBV cases are underreported in Colombia, especially cases against indigenous women.
