The following is an excerpt from the report:

Domestic violence and rape are some of Liberia’s major issues that are trying to be tackled post-war. Factors that influence levels of violence in Liberia include social and cultural norms of gender inequity, lingering effects of 14 years of war, poverty, and the lack of functioning social, health, and law enforcement institutions – which were devastated during the conflict (UN Secretariat, 2006 ).
