It is now widely recognized that violence against women, including harassment and harmful practices, is a major barrier to women and girls enjoying their fundamental human rights, and is a direct challenge to women's inclusion and participation in sustaining peace.
THE Fiji Women's Rights Movement (FWRM) marked the beginning of the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-based Violence with the launching of the Grow, Inspire, Relate, Lead and Succeed (GIRLS) Theatre Program in Suva on Friday night. He added that even with the high number of calls, there are a significant number of incidents of violence against women that are never reported. One in three women will experience some form of sexual assault in her lifetime. "There are many ways to prevent violence in the first place, and to stop its recurrence".
The Day also spotlights the work of women's rights activists, who are being targeted at "alarming levels", and violence against women politicians, which hamper women's rights.
This violence, the most visible sign of pervasive patriarchy and chauvinism, directly impacts women's physical and psychological health. This evidence, however, doesn't improve the actions for women's inclusion, leadership and protection. It is only through working together and giving all women and their families in Canada the same social supports and equality in social funding that we will eliminate this tragic issue and also end missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls.
