Gender inequality makes it inevitable for Violence Against Women to occur, in Mercy’s community, girls are not allowed to pursue their skill sets/hobbies merely because they are girls and therefore thought of as mere caregivers, this limits their options, even if there was a possibility of them finishing school. Inequality also gives the men/boys more priority to finish school and therefore puts them in a place where they can earn a better living leaving women in a place of poverty which is an enabling factor for different types of violence, from physical, economic to emotional and sexual.
