Not all disrespect towards women results in violence. But all violence against women starts with disrespectful behaviour. Violence can take many different forms, including physical and non-physical, and we may not always recognise it. Being aware of the different ways that violence and abuse is used helps us to better understand it, talk about it, and reject it.
