Istanbul holds rally saying "no" to violence against women

Govt 'committed to protecting rights of women'

Eliminating violence against women not only ensures that a basic human right is respected, but also empowers women to lead their lives and reach their full potential.

There was a five percent increase in the violence on women this year, as compared to last year's cases, he said, expressing concern over denial of alimony to women by families.

The 16 days of activism encompass other significant dates: International Women Human Rights Defenders Day on November 29, World AIDS Day on December 1, and December 6: The National Day of Action and Remembrance on Violence Against Women, which commemorates the anniversary of the Montreal Massacre at l'École Polytechnique in 1989.

TORONTO-Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says men must do more to put an end to gender-based violence against women and girls. The day aims at bringing awareness about the violence against women and highlight the need to report it. Women around the world are subject to domestic violence, rape, physical torture and other forms of violence.

The UN family in Afghanistan stressed that alongside the effective legal and institutional mechanisms for access to justice, stopping violence against women requires an effort from all of us, from every individual, to speak out against violence in homes, workplaces and social settings. Most of the terrible crimes against women are made in less developed countries.

Meanwhile, Deputy Speaker National Assembly Murtaza Javed Abbasi, in his message, said that women in Pakistan had been greatly contributing towards the development and prosperity of the country.

Saturday marks the start of the 16 days of activism to end gender-based violence around the world.

Nearly half of the women who were killed in 2012 were killed by either partners or family members, compared to 6% of men.

Research also shows that achieving gender equality helps in preventing conflict, and high rates of violence against women correlate with outbreaks of conflict.

The research, released Friday, said violence against health-care workers is pervasive within the walls of hospitals across Ontario. According to the data, 43% of women in the European Union have endured forms of psychological violence by their partners.

This theme reinforces the UNiTE Campaign's commitment to a world free from violence for all women and girls around the world.
