Deliver real results on violence against women: UK
London: Britain has asked the international community to ensure that UN Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) delivers action on tackling violence against women.
In a letter to Michelle Bachelet, the Executive Director of UN Women, Britain`s International Development Secretary Justine Greening warned that the failure of last year`s CSW to agree any conclusions must not be repeated and that the international community has a responsibility to send a clear signal of support to women and girls around the world.
Justine Greening said: "Last year saw many horrendous incidents of violence against women and girls around the world. International action is more important than ever.
"With the Commission on the Status of Women and G8 this year, we have a key opportunity for the international community to work together to tackle this issue once and for all."
Preventing violence against women and girls is a top priority for all Governments, including our own.
Educated women are less likely to accept domestic violence and more likely to feel empowered to take charge of their own lives.
