Together, challenging violence against women.

Published on 08.11.2018 at 23:47

Violence, abuse, and discrimination against girls and women is an international pandemic that impacts everyone; the developing and the developed world alike. In 30 African countries, over 3 million girls annually risk female genital mutilation: procedures that intentionally alter; cause injury to female genital organs for non-medical reasons.

 

Further, incidences of violence against women are especially high during armed conflict. Even though the UN has adopted international commitments to address gender-related violence in conflict, there is no legal system to hold the perpetrators to account. In today armed conflicts, sexual violence is increasingly used as a weapon of war, designed to denigrate and dehumanize women and to tear families and communities apart.

 

These acts of violence rob victims of the dignity and security that every human being is entitled to. But their consequences extend far beyond those women who are directly victimized by them and affect the society. In addition, one of the many consequences of violence against women is that it often hinders victim’s ability to receive an education and advance their livelihoods.


In this respect, everyone can and should play a role in promoting gender mainstreaming by standing together to oppose all sorts of violence against women. Even acts as simple as being conscious of the gender biases and stereotypes that exist in our culture and avoiding them in our daily interactions and communications.
