Headline: AFRICA/ETHIOPIA – Violence on women and girls increases: the effects of Covid-19

Addis Ababa – Among the harmful effects that the pandemic has caused in the world is the marked increase in abuse against women and children, exposed to violence due to the domestic confinement imposed by the lockdown and the general situation of lack of work, impoverishment and food insecurity.
