Balkh records 443 cases of violence against women

Sustainable Development Minister Rochelle Squires provincial minister responsible for status

"It is time to further our collective action to end violence against women and girls for good", the Secretary-General said marking the Day, which on 25 November, highlights that around the world, more than 1 in 3 women in their lives have experienced physical violence, sexual violence, or both.

Penney Andrews, program manager for Tranquility House, said, "As of November 25, and for the next 16 days, we will incite individuals to take action towards eliminating violence against women".

One of the most widespread and devastating human rights violations in the world today is the violence against women and girls.

The Ministry of Family and Social Policies reported that over 80 percent of women in the country have encountered some kind of physical or psychological violence from a family member, while one out of 15 girls has been sexually harassed at least once in her lifetime.

According to womenhomicide.com data, 260 women were murdered by their male partners, husbands or family members a year ago across Turkey.

Countries have agreed in regional and global plans of action to implement strategies that will strengthen the capacity of health systems to respond to survivors of violence against women. Sustainable Development Goal 5 calls to "Eliminate all forms of violence against all women and girls in the public and private spheres, including trafficking and sexual and other types of exploitation".

TORONTO-Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says men must do more to put an end to gender-based violence against women and girls.

"It becomes just a part of life", said Mlambo-Ngcuka. Most of the awful crimes against women are made in less developed countries. "When we talk about leaving no one behind, we want to identify all these different forms of violence that women experience".

"Sanctions and accountability are critical for behavior change, and for the coming generations to be socialized differently, so that they know that this is not acceptable", said Mlambo-Ngcuka.

The UNiTE to End Violence against Women campaign invites you to "Orange the world", using the colour designated by the campaign to symbolize a brighter future without violence.

While this violence continues, the worldwide community will not achieve the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, a master plan to end poverty and save the planet, adopted by the United Nations in 2015.
