Violence Against Women

Posted by The New N Used Link Team on Saturday, March 9, 2013 Under: Relationships

Violence against women and girls is one of the most widespread violations of human rights. This includes physical, sexual, psychological and economic abuse. It takes place in the home, on the streets, in schools, the workplace just to name a few. Governments all over the world have implemented laws to prevent, eradicate and punish violence against women and girls but thus far it hasnt helped much because a number of the incidents are not been reported. Globally, up to six out of every ten women experience physical and/or sexual violence in their lifetime. A World Health Organization study of 24,000 women in 10 countries found that the prevalence of physical and/or sexual violence by a partner varied from 15 percent in urban Japan to 71 percent in rural Ethiopia, with most areas being in the 30–60 percent range. For women and girls 16–44 years old, violence is a major cause of death and disability. Studies also reveal increasing links between violence against women and HIV and AIDS. A survey among 1,366 South African women showed that women who were beaten by their partners were 48 percent more likely to be infected with HIV than those who were not. Gender-based violence not only violates human rights, but also hampers productivity, reduces human capital and undermines economic growth.What hurts me the most is when a man beat a woman and she stays with this individual, oh i love him...i dont have anybody...he takes care of me blah blah blah this is foolishness because most men that beat women will never stop until you take action and put an end to it. What surprise me the most is that violence occur mainly in relationships and although some women are the cause, it still should not happen. When i say some women are the cause i mean they do things in a relationship that provoke a man for example cheating and when i say cheating am not talking about behind a mans back am talking about being caught in the act. I know a number of men who work very hard to give their women or wives all they need and come home catching them in bed with other men. Now if a man sees this even if he is not a violent person he's gonna flip and flipping can lead to death so i hope you all get what am saying. I think women should leave a man if she is not comfortable in a relationship and not cheat because this only leads to violence and ladies if you are threatened by your man for leaving because of irreconcilable differences please report it. We love our women without them this world would be imbalance, so men treat your woman, child, sister, mother or aunt with love and respect dont hurt them.
