EFFECTS OF VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN ON THE SOCIETY
 

 

Violence against women and girls is one of the most widespread violations of human rights and has far-reaching consequences, harming families and communities. Six out of every ten women experience Gender-based violence, and not only does this violates human rights, but it also hampers productivity, reduces human capital and undermines economic growth. 
 
The Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Pakistan, India and Somalia feature in descending order after Afghanistan in the list of worst places on Earth to be a woman.
 
How do we recognize as well as confront the various social, cultural, and religious interpretations that are producing and reinforcing gender inequalities? How can we identify the connection between stereotypical gender roles and gender-based abuses and violations? 
As we speak some women are still quietly enduring gender-based oppression, these setbacks continue to hamper the progress of societies. Many people in this situation are most not quite clear about the category of the conflict they are facing based on well established norms. How can we differentiate spousal conflict from gender-based oppression? How can oppressed individuals know that they are not alone and can effectively advocate for their rights? 
 
Join us this week as we discuss the Effects of Violence against Women on the society.
 
Host: Dr. Roshan, Sorosh and Dr. Kaushik, Surendra
