He pointed out that the Tunisian revolution has revealed terrible truths about violence against women in Tunisia, and he reaffirmed his commitment to the fight against this phenomenon in all its forms.

Marzouki insisted on the necessity to spread the culture of human rights, preserve the dignity of women and their economic and social rights through protection against exploitation, poverty and marginalization, so as to construct a balanced society.
