Georgia joins int'l campaign against gender-based violence

The campaign starts on Saturday - International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women - and ends December 10 - International Human Rights Day. It is estimated that more than a third of women worldwide have experienced either physical or sexual violence at some point in their lives.

The day of recognition kicks off a 16-day United Nations campaign against gender-based violence, which ends on Human Rights Day Dec. 10. These dates are chosen to symbolically link the issue of violence against women with human rights, while emphasizing that abuse of women is a violation of these rights, stated a release.

"For Afghan women to achieve their full potential and their huge capacity in development, in peace and in security, the violations of the rights of women and girls, particularly through violence, must cease", he said.

He said violence against women, both physical and mental, "happens everywhere and its consequences last for generations", and "this poses threats to social fabrics of societies around the globe".

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

On this day, let us remember that all of us have a critical role to play in ending violence against women. This evidence, however, doesn't improve the actions for women's inclusion, leadership and protection. As a result, resources for initiatives to prevent and end violence against women and girls are severely lacking. This shows violence against women increased in Punjab this year, she said. "When we talk about leaving no one behind, we want to identify all these different forms of violence that women experience".

Trudeau's comments came in a statement made to acknowledge the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women.

We all need to be committed to a world free from violence for all women and girls around the world, including the underserved and marginalized, refugees, migrants, minorities, indigenous peoples, and populations affected by conflict and natural disasters, amongst others. 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.
