I support a Global Treaty on VAW as gender based violence continues unabated all across the world. Primarily, violence against women remains a complex problem arising from women’s poor social status in the society. The existing legislation have had limited focus on improving written laws without any consideration of the mechanisms through which these laws will be implemented and used to improve the lives of women. In addition, there is little consideration of the violence perpetrated against women from marginalized castes, races or ethnic minority groups. A Global Treaty on VAW with a clearer focus on access to justice for marginalized women should be enacted and implemented.
