“In conflict zones and settler colonial contexts violence and atrocities against women and girls take on different modes. Perpetrators range from internal patriarchal attackers to external state oriented abusers, who mostly go unpunished. In such contexts, impunity for structural violence reproduces violence against women and girls, maintains the normativity of VAW , exacerbates oppression, and subjects women and girls to a vulnerable condition. I fully support having a legally binding global convention to eradicate violence against women. The international community must come together and develop effective legal tools to outlaw violence against women, punish individual, communal and state empowered abusers and hold them accountable for their violence.”
