CMPA's call to end violence against Women

IMO News Service

Chennai: Centre for Media & Public Affairs (CMPA) celebrated the International Women's Day today (March 08, 2011) in Chennai. Those who participated expressed their views on how the violence against women is rooted in discrimination against them, in both the private and public sectors.

"Violence against women is perhaps the most shameful human rights violation. As long as it continues, we cannot claim to be making real progress towards empowerment of women. Many women are still denied these basic human rights. More effective protection services are needed to curb out violence against women. CMPA assures strong support in promoting the activism of women and girls demanding their rights. Complete understanding of the freedom of women is of the greatest importance for the full realization of democratic values in India. Eliminating violence against women remains one of the most serious and urgent challenges of our time," said V.Venkat Raj, President, Centre for Media & Public Affairs.

  1. This article reminds me of a documentary "Half Value Life" which explores the life and work of the first female Afghani-Hindu women's rights activist working for elimination of violence against women, highlighting the investigative cases of two 14- and 17-year-old girls who have been raped.
