By on Saturday, November 25, 2017
Human Right Monitoring Committee has organized an awareness march on International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women in support of women issues on Saturday this week at Sarojini Nagar Block Lucknow.
Amit Ambedkar told that International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women is celebrated on 25 November by UN since 1999. The purpose behind this programme is to organize a symposium to end the violence against the women facing on many levels of society and countries of the world.
The programme has the purpose to effort for the law formulation and security provision, and its right execution over to women and changing of discriminatory thought against women of society. One of every three women in the world is the victim of sexual and body violence. Several cases of domestic violence have been in report.

Domestic violence in India is endemic. Around 70% of women in India are victims of domestic violence.
The National Crime Records Bureau reveal that a crime against a woman is committed every three minutes, a woman is raped every 29 minutes, a dowry death occurs every 77 minutes, and one case of cruelty committed by either the husband or relative of the husband occurs every nine minutes. This occurs despite the fact that women in India are legally protected from domestic abuse under the Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act.
Number of murder rose from 286 in January to 396 in March and 399 in April and cases of rape rose from 244 to 378 in March and 393 in April this year in UP.  .

He said, “The activities shall be disseminated with the awareness every month against the violence in the society by the mean of campaign in the villages.”
