A Life Free of Violence Is Our Right!

un article par Danielle Brauer

The United Nations Trust Fund to End Violence against Women marked its ten year anniversary on February 16, 2007. At the UN commemoration event several people spoke about the successes of the Trust Fund and the future of the Trust Fund, which was developed by the General Assembly. "The Trust Fund is the only multilateral grant-making mechanism that supports local, national and regional efforts to combat gender-based violence." The money from the Trust Fund, which is overseen by UNIFEM, supports local groups to bring about real change in people's lives.

Since the Trust Fund formed ten years ago it has "supported more than 200 initiatives in over 100 countries." Most grants were awarded to 20 countries who promised to ensure that they would use the money to end violence against women. The UNIFEM Executive Director Noeleen Heyzer noted, "The one thing we have learned is that no single intervention will end violence against women."

"There needs to be partnerships in place with all levels of civil society, and the international community." Heyzer went on to say, "violence against women must be seen for what it is, a violation of woman's human rights and totally unacceptable in all contexts and situations." To date: 89 countries now have laws to address violence against women. In the past ten years UNIFEM has made great strides with the help of the UN Trust Fund to End Violence against Women, and to bring this issue to the table of the international community.

Listen to me, I do have a voice

published in Le Mauricien on International Women's Day, 8 March, 2013, by Priya Baligadoo

Eager I was to tell my story and share my views but none was ready to listen. Sometimes, people did cast a glance at me and I was so happy. It made me think that I was not invisible and I did exist. These were however, momentary moments. Ignoring my presence and my wish to speak up, they would pass by me. I was just a curiosity for them. My ripped clothes, bruised arms and swollen face might have attracted their interest but none had the time to listen to my side of the story.

On the International Women's Day, women around the world are expected to make their voices heard. Yet, no one has asked me how difficult it is to talk. . ... continuation.
