Oxfam Ireland ambassador Sharon Corr went to Tanzania to see first hand how the 'We Can' campaign which asks people to change their behaviours and attitudes towards domestic violence, is having an amazing impact.

Violence against women is widespread in Tanzania.

Women are more likely to die from violence by men than from cancer, malaria, traffic accidents and war combined.

1 in every 3 women has been beaten, coerced into sex or otherwise abused in her lifetime. This abuse can lock them into poverty.

It's a violation of human rights and is preventing societies from prospering.

By supporting women to protect themselves from violence and helping communities to understand that it’s not right, we stand a better chance of fighting poverty.

To date, the campaign has been able to mobilize more than 350,000 Change Makers in Tanzania - people who pledge to change violent behaviour and speak out against domestic violence.

When women and men are treated equally, everyone benefits.

Support our campaign on women’s rights - Ending Poverty Starts with Women.
