Actions to be taken

124. By Governments:

r. Cooperate with and assist the Special Rapporteur of the Commission on Human Rights on violence against women in the performance of her mandate and furnish all information requested; cooperate also with other competent mechanisms, such as the Special Rapporteur of the Commission on Human Rights on torture and the Special Rapporteur of the Commission on Human Rights on summary, extrajudiciary and arbitrary executions, in relation to violence against women;

s. Recommend that the Commission on Human Rights renew the mandate of the Special Rapporteur on violence against women when her term ends in 1997 and, if warranted, to update and strengthen it.

Beijing Declaration (1995)

The basic program in the work fighting or combatting violence against women, and girls, comes in the acknowledgment of the human rights of women, and girls, where this, at a minimum, sets a stage of a base consideration of women as human beings deserving of the same freedoms and rights as men.

This basic consensus ethic is a basis for modern morality. Within this universalistic rather than objectivistic ethic, we find a reasonable basis for the continuance of the work for the reduction and eventual elimination of violence against women. Of course, looking at the specific stipulations here, we can note the ays in which there are specialized individuals, commissions, and so on, for the protection of women from violence.

In particular, we can note the rather serious content with the extrajudiciary and the arbitraty executions as well; those related to violence against women. Then the rest simply remarks on some routine procedural and station notes.

–(Updated 2018-11-10) One can find similar statements in other documents, conventions, declarations and so on, with the subsequent statements of equality or women’s rights:

Lead Page:
Led by: Scott Douglas JacobsenTo the socio-political Right, a disclaimer; to the socio-political Left, a trigger warning: the subject matter may be disturbing or triggering for some listeners, speakers, or call members. The statistics on international violence against women is disproportionately more than violence against men. In turn, there is violence against women committed by women against women but more often by men against women. It is the statistical difference, which is the basis for the international emphasis on violence against women in multiple spheres rather than localized differences. Wednesday morning, we will speak on violence against women for one hour or so.
