Ending Impunity for Violence against Women Printable Version PRINTABLE VERSION

Human Rights   Opinions


Ending Impunity for Violence against Women Thursday 8 March was celebrated as the International Women’s Day. The theme for this year’s celebrations was Ending Impunity for Violence against Women

For many of us, this theme may strike a cord in our core nerves. We have either experienced, witnessed or been affected by violence against women in our society. According to Dr. Sam Thenya, the CEO of the Nairobi Women’s Hospital, the youngest sexual violence victim they have received is a 6 week old baby girl and the oldest; an 85 year old grandmother!

The G&D Programme; in conjunction with ICRAF’s and ILRI’s G&D Associates (GDAs) planned a brief visit to the Nairobi Women’s Hospital (Gender and Recovery Violence Center) on Thursday 8 March from 11.00 to 12 noon. The Hospital management had informed them that their major needs are drugs; antibiotics, painkillers etc. I would like to thank those who made contributions towards this worthy cause.
