Stop Violence Against Women

Violence against women is often ignored and rarely punished

Women and girls suffer disproportionately from violence - both in peace and in war, at the hands of the state, the community and the family.

A life free from violence is a basic human right

From the home to the conflict zone, violence against women must stop.

Amnesty International's campaign to Stop Violence Against Women:

Pushes for the implementation of existing laws that guarantee access to justice and services for women subjected to violence including rape and other forms of sexual violence

Calls for new laws to be enacted that will protect women's human rights

Demands an end to laws that discriminate against women

Urges the ending of violence against women perpetrated by a state and its agents

Works to empower women
