Gender equality: Says No to Violence Against Women

The International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women was celebrated on Wednesday (November 25th) in M’vouni .
The international coordinator of the UNFPA (The United Nations Population Fund) Comoros programme, Efith Ouattara encourage the fight against violence on women, whether on sexist remarks, humiliation or physical assault. « Enough! This is what we say, today and every day, to all forms of violence against women and girls. Enough for domestic violence. Enough for rape. Enough for harmful practices like female genital mutilation. Women and girls have every right to live without violence, everywhere. They have the right to be at peace at home, in public and online, » declared the international coordinator .
In more than 130 countries, UNFPA has provided medical or psychosocial support services to more than 760,000 survivors of violence. For her part, the president of a Ngo called “Hifadhui”, Rahmatou Goulam says that the texts are not enough. It therefore calls for a revision of the texts for fair justice. « We need to apply these texts and follow them up closely. Unfortunately, the number of criminals is increasing in the country and I blame the courts” she concluded.
An awareness campaign has started on 25th November and will end on 10th December at the national level .
