Violence Against Women and Children (VAWC)

 

Did you know that every 20 seconds someone becomes a victim of domestic violence?

 

Violence against women, particularly Intimate partner violence and sexual violence are major public health problems and violations of women's human rights. Violence against women is a form of violence that is gender-based. Violence occurs because of their gender. Specifically,

BECAUSE THEY ARE WOMEN

Violence against women may take different forms standing individual, community, and societal level. The most common forms of violence include Rape, Domestic Violence, Stalking, Sexual Harassment, Human Trafficking, Forced Prostitution, State Violence and Female Genital Mutilation. Global estimates published by the WHO indicate that globally about 1 in 3 women worldwide have experienced either physical and/or sexual violence in their lifetime. As a results of violence that inflicted against them. The victim were forced to deal with Rejection, Ostracism, and Social Stigma at the community level.

 

Violence against women devastates the lives of millions of women and girls and in peacetime and in conflict. It also causes them terrible suffering and leaves them with emotional and physical injuries, and sometimes even costing them their lives. In addition, it also affects families, communities and wider societies, preventing women from taking full advantage of economic and educational opportunities and threatening security by increasing social tensions. Violence against women also prevents women from going to work, participating in community life, and accessing economic and educational opportunities to create better lives for themselves and their families. Also, violence against women dramatically impedes progress in meeting all of our global health goals, including efforts to stem maternal mortality and the spread of HIV/AIDS. Approximately 1 in 4 women are abused during pregnancy, which, according to the World Health Organization, has been linked to miscarriage, pre-term labor, low birth weight, fetal distress, and death. Women who have experienced violence are also at higher risk for contracting HIV, and women living with HIV may be up to 3 times more likely to experience violence than other women. Fear of violence also prevents women from accessing HIV/AIDS information and receiving treatment and counseling.

 

Now is the time to act. Together, WE can help women and children who were victims of violence. Together, WE can make a difference. Together, WE can help save their lives.
