dc.descriptionThis article analyses gender-based violence in the country contexts of Zimbabwe and El&nbsp;Salvador, where distinct periods of conflict and turbulence led to nominal peace, but no&nbsp;recognisable reduction or improvement in the status of women. Women in these two&nbsp;societies continued to experience high levels of gender-based violence. We outline the&nbsp;experience and strategies of Oxfam America along with national partners in addressing&nbsp;gender-based violence in these post-conflict societies. The article draws from Oxfam&nbsp;America&rsquo;s experiences in El Salvador and Zimbabwe, where a campaign and advocacy&nbsp;approach promoted new policy responses and legislation as a result of changes in&nbsp;societal and political attitudes to gender-based violence. It outlines the strategies and&nbsp;partnerships used by the Zimbabwe and El Salvador campaigns, including community&nbsp;outreach, mass mobilisation, and legislative lobbying, to achieve a positive shift in&nbsp;national policies and practices to prevent gender-based violence. This article is hosted by our co-publisher Taylor & Francis.
