It includes acts that inflict physical, sexual, or mental harm or suffering, threats of such acts, coercion, and other deprivations of liberty. These acts can occur in public or in private spaces. Common forms of GBV include sexual violence (rape, attempted rape, unwanted touching, sexual exploitation, and sexual harassment), intimate partner violence (also referred to as domestic violence, including physical, emotional, sexual, and economic abuse), forced and early marriage and female genital mutilation.
