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. 

  
3. The question of consent needs to be reconsidered. When a woman says no, what does her perpetrator(s) think she’s actually saying? 

  
As models of joint approach, we need guidelines and recommendations to tackle the issues of sexual violence against women and girls.
