Requesting that the United Nations create an enforcement clause for Resolution 48/104

The United Nations Resolution 48/104. Declaration on the Elimination of Violence against Women (20 December 1983) includes the following statement:

States should condemn violence against women and should not invoke any custom, tradition or religious consideration to avoid their obligations with respect to its elimination. States should pursue by all appropriate means and without delay a policy of eliminating violence against women

We ask that the General Assembly of the United Nations create a specific, enforceable statute to ensure that:
1) economic and political sanctions are levied against:
a. States that do not have laws that restrict violence against women
b. States that measurably neglect to enforce laws that restrict violence against women and
c. States that explicitly, implicitly or tacitly shield from prosecution those perpetrators of violence against women.

and that

2) the General Assembly resolve to withhold non-humanitarian, discretionary assistance from:
a. States that do not have laws that restrict violence against women
b. States that measurably neglect to enforce laws that restrict violence against women and
c. States that explicitly, implicitly or tacitly shield from prosecution those perpetrators of violence against women.
