A Commitment to Fight Violence Against Women
Violence against women and children remains rampant. And though there is a growing public awareness on the issue, more often than not, the term violence against women immediately brings to mind wife battering, rape and sexual harassment.
In reality, there are so many more forms of violence against women or the violation of women’s rights; ranging from personal to political. More alarming are the continuing misconceptions regarding violence against women e.g. blaming the victim or regarding the VAW cases as merely personal or family matters.
