Team effort needed to fight violence vs women: Legarda

This was announced by Senator Loren Legarda committee chair during her sponsorship speech on the proposed 2018 budget

At the heart of all forms of physical and sexual violence is gender inequality and discrimination, which violate the fundamental human rights of women and girls.

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". Pakistan is the world's third most unsafe county for women.

Nearly half of the women who were killed in 2012 were killed by either partners or family members, compared to 6% of men. What the challenges that contribute to this ongoing acceptance of violence against women? As a result, resources for initiatives to prevent and end violence against women and girls are severely lacking.

"The UNiTE Campaign will mark this year's 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence, from 25 November through 10 December, under the theme Leave No One Behind: Ending Violence against Women and Girls".

The organisations have developed several evidence-based tools to strengthen health care providers' abilities and health systems' capacity to respond to women who have experienced violence, which are available online.

Arsenal prefer Ozil to Barca
If the club want them to stay beyond December they will follow. "It is other people who are the ones who have to make a decision". Ozil is nearly certain to quit the Gunners at the end of the season when his existing deal with the club runs out.

Today the CS Gender, youth and affair Sicily Kariuki launched a campaign dubbed "Jitokeze "that calls on Kenyans to speak up against gender based violence". "When we talk about leaving no one behind, we want to identify all these different forms of violence that women experience". "This moment has exposed how men in authority can become serial perpetrators..."

It also coincides with the trial in Spain of five men accused of gang raping a woman, who was then 18, in July 2016 during the famed Pamplona bull-running festival, a case that has shocked the country.

"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 this year believes in "Orange the world" using the colour designated by the campaign to showcase a brighter future.

Countries should also continue the actions recommended in regional and global strategies and plans of action, and work to achieve the violence-related targets of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the report concluded.
