Violence against Women

 There is an alarming growth in the cases of violence against women all over the world. Around the globe, At least one woman in every three has been beaten, coerced into sex, or otherwise abused in her lifetime. Most often the abuser is a member of her own family. Increasingly, gender based violence is recognized as a major public health concern and a violation of human rights. One in five women will be a victim of rape or attempted rape in her lifetime. In India there are close to 15,000 dowry deaths estimated per year. Mostly they are kitchen fires designed to look like accidents

At least 60 million girls who would otherwise be expected to be alive are “missing” from various populations as a result of sex-selective abortions or inadequate care as they are seen less important than boys
