'FOGSI PLEDGES TO PREVENT VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN AND GIRLS'
Let's pledge to prevent violence against women and girls .
25th November being the international day for prevention and elimination of violence against women, we join hands to eradicate this major public health problem .It is the most pervasive human rights violation and a global epidemic .Violence can be physical, psychological, intimate partner sexual violence, sexual abuse and others. As per the WHO statistics 1in 3 women worldwide has experienced physical or sexual violence in their lifetime. Males are perpetrators to violence due to illiteracy ,drug abuse, unequal gender norms, childhood maltreatment, exposure to domestic violence and taken for granted women's subordinate status .This has a huge negative impact on women's mental and physical health .
"Say NO to violence against women and girls "
I SUPPORT THE CAUSE TO ENABLE WOMEN TO LIVE IN A WORLD FREE OF GENDER BASED VIOLENCE.
