Welcome to the 54th edition of The Pixel Project’s VAW e-News Digest. As usual, we bring you the latest and most relevant news related to violence against women and efforts at eradicating it around the world.
In this edition of the VAW e-News Digest we highlight the social impact of the recent case of gang rape in New Delhi. The gang rape has highlighted the extent of sexual violence against women in New Delhi and has unearthed deep frustrations the people have concerning the safety of women in the city.

Meanwhile in the United States, the Violence Against Women Act continues to be stalled.

We also bring good news: the United Nations has declared a ban on female genital mutilation. The ban is hoped to increase the progress of various groups hoping to end the practice of female genital mutilation, particularly in various countries in Africa.
