Even though violence against women and girls happens in every country and continent, it would be more serious in the context of armed conflict; disaster and the culture tolerate violent behaviors of men. The joint panel session includes three presentations from three Asian countries stating different impacts on violence against women and girls, which are 1) Challenges from culture for women in coping with gender-based violence in Vietnam; 2) The effects of post-disaster to women's safe spaces in Nepal; 3) Violence against immigrant brides in Taiwan, challenges and breakthrough.
