From: Reveal toolkit: Gender and sexual violence

Tools to reveal and address inequality between men and women, and to address gender-based violence, including sexual violence and female genital mutilation/cutting

The activity uses a picture of a tree to think about the causes of violence (roots), the different types of violence against women and girls (branches) and the consequences of violence (leaves).

This activity is intended to be used as part of a wider process or project, and not as a standalone tool without any follow-up. We recommend that you use Tool A1 – Why should we address VAWG? And Tool A1 – Men and women: listening to one another before using this tool.
