Introduction

Coexist Initiative is a multi-global award winning Kenyan NGO working across Kenya and the entire East Africa region to promote gender transformation, human rights and social justice. In collaboration with Mululu Consultants, a local Kenyan firm with a true African heritage who provide high- valued consulting services that assist clients expand their work and reach, will host the inaugural East Africa and Southern Gender Based Violence Summit in Nairobi Kenya.

Violence against women and girls in Kenya as it is in other parts of the world is an aftermath of profound social systems that advance and proliferate it. Attitudes that generate traditions of terror and encourage the use of violence as enshrined in patriarchy, negative masculinity and the entire negative socialization process remain ever present. Gender based violence is a manifestation of unequal relations between women and men with roots in deeply entrenched social, economic and political informal conventions based on perceived men and boys “privilege” at the expense of girls and women’s vulnerability
