Violence against women

The U.N.’s Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean released a report this week that finds that up to 40% of women in Latin America were victims of physical violence. The number for emotional abuse is even higher.

 

The report states that “a close relationship exists between inequality, discrimination and violence against women.”

 

“Further, violence against women gains strength from and is promoted by the persistence of the balance of power that takes [from women] possibilities to exercise economic, political and physical autonomy.”

 

Laura Carrera, Mexico’s national commissioner for the prevention of violence against women said  ”Trafficked, sold, exploited for sexual reasons; excluded from employment and school because they are pregnant; discriminated or attacked for not hewing to masculine criteria…. Violence against women does not distinguish among social class, origin, generation, color of skin nor creed”.

 

As is the case with children in many parts of the world, women are treated as second class citizens or worse. It is time for enforceable international laws to protect women and children.
