Word from the president.
Violence against women, girls and children is one of the most recurrent human rights violations in the world. This violence can take various forms depending on the economic, social and geographic situation. Globally, it is estimated that one in three women will experience sexual or physical violence in her lifetime. It is estimated that 35 percent of women globally have experienced physical and / or sexual violence from an intimate partner or sexual violence from another person (not including sexual harassment) from an intimate partner. given moment in their life. However, some national studies show that up to 70 percent of women have experienced physical and / or sexual violence from an intimate partner in their lifetime.
The data also show that, among women who have been victims of physical or sexual violence by their partners, the rates of depression are higher – whether they have had an abortion or contracted HIV – compared to women. ‘having not had to endure such violence. SOURCES www.unwomen.org
Although this gender-based violence threatens the dignity, health, autonomy, security, confidence, and lives of its victims, it remains protected by silence, culture, customs …
Note that these consequences can cause problems for the sexual and reproductive health of these victims; sexually transmitted diseases, including HIV, early and unwanted pregnancies, unsafe abortion, traumatic fistulas, even death.
Based on this observation, the non-governmental organization Voix De Femme (NGO), which campaigns for the eradication of violence in the public and private spheres in general, and more specifically of Violence against Women and
Children decided to make this fight a priority to protect them. Because women are the source of life, we must ensure their well-being and happiness for sustainable human development; and these children, these little angels represent the future of this world. And if we do not prevent executioners, pedophiles, murderers from violating them, wresting their innocence, their joy, we risk having violent adults in a world where social cohesion is threatened.
Voix De Femme will achieve all these objectives to eradicate this violence and promote female leadership, without forgetting to re-educate children and young people, to put training at the heart of their lives.
