Combating Sexual Violence: Legal and Systemic Reform
Venue: Church Center of the UN, 777 United Nations Plaza, 10th Floor
Organiser: Global Rights for Women
1. States have the responsibility to recognise rape as a torture, as a violation of human rights, and as violence against women.
2. Violence Against Women is a form of discrimination.
As models of joint approach, we need guidelines and recommendations to tackle the issues of sexual violence against women and girls.
