Addressing the Unseen Pandemic: Efforts to Combat Violence Against Women

Efforts to combat violence against women include raising awareness, legal reforms prioritizing victim protection, free legal aid, education on domestic violence, and advocacy for better workplace conditions. Dedicated committees advocate for these changes to support and empower victims, aiming to break the cycle of abuse. Violence against women remains one of the gravest violations of human rights across the globe, with one in three women worldwide experiencing physical or sexual violence. Femicide, the murder of women because of their gender, is the tragic result of chronic abuse. A proactive committee has been working for 27 years to prevent and combat domestic violence, implementing important strategies and advocating for legal and social reforms. Access to free legal aid and education on domestic violence are critical in supporting victims and breaking the cycle of abuse. The committee remains committed to defending the rights of female victims and spearheading initiatives to bring about real change.
