Domestic violence and other forms of violence against women remain problems in Georgia. The State has made significant progress through the passage of new legislation to implement the Istanbul Convention. Yet, gaps remain in implementation. Women generally still fear reporting violence and do not trust state emergency services to help them. Attempted femicides are also on the rise. Sexual harassment is also a problem in Georgia, particularly for those in the civil service.

Georgia has one of the highest rates of child marriage in Eastern Europe. The high rate of child marriage threatens girls' right to education.
