“Despite the wide ratification of CEDAW, violence against women continues in its most severest and oppressive forms across societies around the world. This signals a critical gap between existing international norms on prohibition of such violence which are framed in terms of discrimination and their substantive effectiveness to make any meaningful impact in terms of the ground realities of the victims. There is an urgent need for the international community to come together to develop a more effective global tool and set of norms to prevent violence against women in all its forms.”
