“International treaties are the mechanisms of making world leaders accountable and transmitting the international accepted human rights principles into national context through laws. An International Treaty on Violence Against Women is of utmost importance to, on the one hand, strengthen the legally binding mechanism for fighting violence that still remains as one of the most widespread in the world, and on the other push its endorsement at the national levels. Violence against women is the main barrier to women’s empowerment, a milestone of development. Thus, while we are ineffective to fight violence against women, development progress will by no means be successful at any levels.”
