Breaking the silence surrounding the issue of violence against women has been one of the greatest achievements of the UN Trust Fund to End Violence against Women.

That's according to the President of the grant-making body, Meryem Aslan.

According to the UN, one out of three women globally has suffered violence at least once in her lifetime.

Ms. Alsan speaks about the efforts led by the Fund since 1996 to free the world from this form of violence.
