Developing and using the Laws on Violence against Women and Girls Index
To understand the severity of gender-based violence across the world, global indexes can provide such information from a comparative analysis. Researchers at Emory University developed the Laws on Violence against Women and Girls Index (LoVI) to measure global progress to develop comprehensive national legislation against child marriage, sexual harassment, domestic violence, and marital rape. The LoVI is a concise, coherent, validated index to monitor the progress of nations on adopting comprehensive legislation to advance 2030 Sustainable Development Goal 5, to eliminate gender-based violence.
