The Violence is Not our Culture (VNC) Campaign was founded in 2007 and is a global network of organisations and individuals committed to end all forms of discrimination and violence against women (VAW) being justified in the name of culture and/or religion. Such forms of gender-based violence include stoning, whipping/lashing, forced marriage, child marriage, female genital mutilation and “honour” killings. The Campaign is now present in Southeast Asia, South Asia, the Middle East and Africa.
