“I am in favor of a global binding norm on VAW because violence against women is an issue that affects women all around the world. It manifests in the current structure and power relations that materialize in the discrimination on women because they are women. This is across all cultures, social and economic status, ethnic, political and religious beliefs. The rights of women are human rights and these are universal. Progress has been made to protect women from violence by treaties and conventions that are signed and ratified by state parties with the objective to guarantee, protect, sanction and eradicate violence against women and to assure the rights of women to live a life free of violence.”
