Stop Violence Against Women

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
