Violence Against Women In Politics (A Study Conducted In India, Nepal And Pakistan)
PDF File Size: 2.29 MB | Download   
Violence against Women (VAW) is prevalent in every country in the world and is one of the leading causes of morbidity for women. Among women aged between 15 and 44, acts of violence cause more death and disability than cancer, malaria, traffic accidents and war combined. Perhaps the most pervasive human rights violation that we know of today, VAW includes domestic violence in the home, sexual abuse of girls in schools, sexual harassment at work, and rape whether by husbands or strangers, in refugee camps or as a tactic of war. This violence, which is reinforced by discriminatory cultural, social and economic structures, devastates lives, fractures communities, and stalls development.
