Author(s): Happy Nsakanya, Nakamba Judith
Abstract: Gender-based violence occurs in all societies of the world, within the home or in the wider community and it affects women and girls disproportionately. This paper attempts to discuss some types of gender-based violence like rape, commercial sexual exploitation, domestic violence, and female genital mutilation. The paper also discusses the causes and effects of gender-based violence especially on the females. It also suggests what social studies curriculum should contain so as to solve the problems of gender-based violence in the society. In addition, this article will recommend solutions that both include and go beyond those proposed by many institutions, organizations and government.
