"This is unfortunate that large number of women rural to urban areas still face sex and gender based violence in various forms. Discriminatory social, cultural and traditional norms continue playing role in prevalence of violence against women. Most of these cases either go unreported or the perpetrators held not accountable. This situation must change. I am committed to end all forms of violence against women. Let’s join hands. Let’s stand firm against GBV Violence. Together we can."
