Stop Violence Against Women

Violence against women is often ignored and rarely punished
Women and girls suffer disproportionately from violence – both in peace and in war, at the hands of the state, the community and the family.

A life free from violence is a basic human right

From the home to the conflict zone, violence against women must stop.
Amnesty International’s campaign to Stop Violence Against Women:

  • Pushes for the implementation of existing laws that guarantee access to justice and services for women subjected to violence including rape and other forms of sexual violence
  • Calls for new laws to be enacted that will protect women’s human rights
  • Demands an end to laws that discriminate against women
  • Urges the ending of violence against women perpetrated by a state and its agents
  • Works to empower women

  1. No doubt that violence against woman needs to stop. This has become a universal problem. Most woman I’ve met, have been abused either sexually or physically at least once in their lifetime which is just sad. just what did these innocent people do to deserve that sort of mental trauma to haunt them till death? We should confront the truth and address that violence against woman is a widespread of a problem that literally occurs everywhere and at anytime and woman should not be afraid to open up and seek for help when they need it the most.
