Girls Power Project

“Leave no one behind” Relationship based Violence under the overarching theme, “Leave No One Behind: End Violence against Women and Girls”— reflecting the core principle of the transformative 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. 

The Problem

Leave No One Behind: End Violence against Women and Girls” reinforces the BCHRD As in previous years, the colour orange will be a key theme unifying all activities, and buildings and landmarks will be lit and decorated in orange to bring global attention to the issue of violence against women and girls. Relationship violence has been a major tool of violence and this incident is happening due to lack of implementation of existing law. The perpetrators would bring to justice and provide exemplary punishment so that would not dare to commit such crimes any more. The rising trend of sexual violence against women reasons a culture of impunity apathy of law enforcers and administration typically mindset and social and political unrest are the major contributors to the malaise. The Government law enforcing agencies should be active. If they do their duty properly then automatically the number of violence against women will be less. There are many treaties and acts such as: Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW).

“Leave no one behind” Relationship based Violence under the overarching theme, “Leave No One Behind: End Violence against Women and Girls”— reflecting the core principle of the transformative 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Campaign’s commitment to a world free from violence for all women and girls around the world, while reaching the most underserved and marginalized, including refugees, migrants, minorities, indigenous peoples, and populations affected by conflict and natural disasters, amongst others, first. When women will be considered as a human being then prevention of violence against women will be possible.
