The traditional gender roles that depict women as the inferior gender have played a critical part in driving sexual violence. These gender-based stereotypes are the leading causes of such violence. Alcohol and drugs have also increased gender-based violence, with women the victims most of the time. Sexual violence like child marriages, sex trafficking, and sex suppression are also caused by almost similar factors.
