Portraits of Goddess

Over several years, UN Women (The United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women) has accompanied CSAGA in many women rights advocacy activities.

In 2017, we decided to incorporate the prevention of sexual violence against women and girls as one of the main contents of the 16 Days campaign to end violence against women and girls, starting from International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women (25th November) to International Human Rights Day (10th December).

A key activity in 2017 was the exhibition titled "Portraits of the Goddess." Throughout this book, many portraits, stories and inner strengths of the women of different social groups, ethnic groups and countries have been brought out to the world. They have been brave enough to speak out, breaking the silence and changing their own way of life, and leaving painful experiences sinking into the past.

This book reflects the commitment of UN Women and CSAGA to a vision of "Leaving no one behind"" - where the experiences of girls and women - victims of violent forms are heard and be considered in policy development as well as response measures, to ensure that their needs are met to the fullest extent possible.

Access to Criminal Justice by Women Subjected to Violence in Viet Nam

This study provides new insights into how women perceive the justice system in Viet Nam and how the victims are treated. When the very actors tasked with facilitating access to criminal justice instead "counsel" and pressure victims to settle cases out of court, or treat them without regard for their dignity or privacy, it should come as no surprise that many women eventually give up on a system which is often unresponsive to their needs. When the criminal justice system fails to fulfill women's human rights, this contributes to perpetuating cultures of reconciliation, cultures of invisibility, and cultures of impunity. This impunity – an exemption from punishment and accountability – fuels violence against women, reducing the impact of advocacy and hard-fought policy achievements.

Harsh punishment for child offenders doesn’t prevent further criminality

The age at which a child, can be held criminally liable is a controversial issue around the world. Within Viet Nam, this issue is currently being grappled with in the Penal Code amendments. Some argue that a "get tough on crime" approach is necessary to punish children to prevent further criminality.

However, international research shows that because of their developmental stages, labelling and treating children as criminals at an early age can have serious negative impacts on their development and successful rehabilitation.

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s message for World AIDS Day, observed on 1 December

 

Thirty-five years since the emergence of AIDS, the international community can look back with some pride.  But we must also look ahead with resolve and commitment to reach our goal of ending the AIDS epidemic by 2030.

There has been real progress in tackling the disease. More people than ever are on treatment.  Since 2010, the number of children infected through mother to child transmission has dropped by half. Fewer people die of AIDS related causes each year.  And people living with HIV are living longer lives.

The number of people with access to life-saving medicines has doubled over the past five years, now topping 18 million. With the right investments, the world can get on the fast-track to achieve our target of 30 million people on treatment by 2030.  Access to HIV medicines to prevent mother to child transmission is now available to more than 75 per cent of those in need.
