Equidad de las mujeres – Gobierno de Colombia

Colombia has high reported rates of rape and domestic violence generally, and national surveys have found even higher rates among the displaced. A 2011 government sponsored survey found that almost 48% of displaced women reported suffering domestic violence, and more than 9% reported being raped by someone other than their partner.

According to the Legal Medicine and Forensic Sciences (INMLCF) the total rate of cases of sexual violence increased 11% from 2010 to the highest rate in ten years; 49 cases for every 100,000 inhabitants amongst the internally displaced population in Colombia. Notably, a 2011 Profamilia and USAID study that looked specifically at the sexual and reproductive health of two marginalized communities─poor and displaced—found higher rates of intra-familial violence and sexual violence among displaced women than was reported in the national ENDS survey of the general population. The survey found that almost 48% of displaced women who were or had been married or partnered reported having suffered violence at the hands of their intimate partners.

Intermón Oxfam in collaboration with national women’s civil society organizations, including Casa de la Mujer, Sisma Mujer, Ruta Pacífica de las Mujeres, Fundsarep, and Vamos Mujer, conducted the first-ever prevalence study regarding sexual violence against women in the context of the conflict in the years 2001 to 2009, based on interviews with 2,693 women in Colombia. This study, released in 2011, found that in 407 municipalities in which armed groups were present, 17.6% of women—that is almost half a million women—were direct victims of sexual violence.

In Colombia, over 9% of displaced women reported being raped by someone other than their partner. This contrasts with the 37% of women in the general population who were or had been married or partnered reported in the 2010 ENDS survey having suffered physical violence at the hands of their partners, and almost 10% reported that the form of violence was rape. Nearly 6% of the women of the general population said they had been raped by someone other than their husband or current partner. Source: Colombia: Obstacles to Care for Abused, Displaced Women.

In Colombia, reports indicate that sexual violence has been used by non-state armed groups as a strategy to assert social control and to intimidate civilians, in particular women leaders and human rights defenders. Source: Sexual Violence in Conflict, UNICEF, Colombia, 2015

Many women in Colombia have been subject to forced abortions and births, especially within guerrilla groups. Moreover, many abortion procedures were inadequate and took place very late in the pregnancy, resulting in high risks of health complications.

In the conflict setting in Colombia, women were subject to forced recruitment and labor; early or forced marriage; ongoing threats and multiple displacements perpetrated by armed actors.
