Ghana assented to following the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD, 1994), the Beijing Platform (1995), Convention on the Elimination of all forms of Violence against Women (CEDAW) among others. All these, including United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC), attest to the seriousness attached to the well-being and protection of women and girls. Gender Studies and Human Rights Documentation Centre (GSHRDC) exists to promote violent-free situation for women and girls and commits researches to enrich programmes. All these rest on the 1992 Fourth Republican Constitution of Ghana as National blueprint. Contrary to established cultural norms, traditional values, religious precepts and social standards, violence against women and girls remain nagging and turbulent to individual, family and community development. It is indeed pervasive in the Northern Region.
