Please watch Winnie Byanyima, Executive Director, Oxfam International, deliver a message from Oxfam on International Women's Day.
For us at Oxfam, this year International Women’s Day is a day for deep reflection. Seeing how some women were abused by some of our own staff is very painful. We stand with the victims and the survivors. We stand for justice for those who suffered. And we’re not going to give up our fight for women’s rights and gender equality around the world.
The Tunisian Parliament has adopted a new law for the elimination of all forms of violence against women and girls, including domestic violence. In response, Soufia Galand, Oxfam Country Office Tunisia Gender Justice Officer, said: “The revolution is still alive and it has added a feminist milestone to its path!"
This multi-country research report examines the problem of implementation gaps – government failures to fulfill their legislative obligations to address and prevent violence against women and girls.
"Women and girls are today bravely taking a stand and Oxfam stands with them in solidarity," said Winnie Byanyima, Oxfam International Executive Director and women’s rights leader, this International Women’s Day.
