Sexual Violence Against Women Must Be Stopped

The writer, a spokesman with Uganda People’s Defense Forces, explains how in Africa, women should experience improved peace through intermarriages, since the in-laws became part of the wider family. However, he notes that today with all the rhetoric about women emancipation and gender equality, there is more violence against them than in the past. He talks about how VAW is one of the most widespread violations of human rights and can include physical, sexual, psychological, and economic abuse, which it cuts across age, race, culture, class and nations.
