Millions of women and girls around the world are assaulted, beaten, raped, mutilated or even murdered in what constitutes appalling violations of their human rights.

Acid throwing, Breast ironing, Bride burning, Dating abuse, Domestic violence, Domestic violence and pregnancy, Dowry death, Honor killing, Female genital mutilation, Gishiri cutting Infibulation, Foot binding, Forced abortion, Forced pregnancy, Forced prostitution, Human trafficking, Marital rape, Murder of pregnant women, Rape Pregnancy, Sati Sexual slavery, Sexual violence, Violence against prostitutes ...

All too often, perpetrators go unpunished. Women and girls are afraid to speak out because of a culture of impunity. We must fight the sense of fear and shame that punishes victims who have already endured crime and now face stigma. It is the perpetrators who should feel disgraced, not their victims.

We can no longer close our eyes and tolerate this horrible situation. All women and children from all over the world have the right to be respected and be treated as they should !

As we build on these efforts, we must fundamentally challenge the culture of discrimination that allows violence to continue.

Let their voices be heard...

Henk Lefevre.
