On the occasion of the International Day on the Elimination of Violence against Women
(25 November), the Special Rapporteur of the United Nations Human Rights Council on
violence against women, its causes and consequences, Yakin Ertürk, and the Special
Rapporteur of the United Nations Human Rights Council on torture and other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment, Manfred Nowak, issued the following
press statement:Over the years there has been considerable progress in making the scale of violence against women widely known and in developing legal and practical instruments to strengthen the protection of women from violence. Yet significant gaps in protection remain. Many countries fail to recognize some forms of violence against women as crimes. Cultural or religious paradigms are still invoked to condone female genital mutilation, the execution and murder of women, marital rape and other forms of violence. On the other hand, the application of international instruments and the development of strategies to condemn and punish torture have been slow to take into account genderbased aspects of torture, such as sexual violence, and have treated severe pain or suffering inflicted on women in the private sphere as a “domestic affair”. Consequently, avenues for redress have been limited and women have not been adequately protected from all forms of violence against them.
