The twenty –fifth of November each year matches “The International Day of Eliminating Violence against women . which is issued by The United Nations 16 years ago , after the emergence of increasing violence against women and girls . Statistics showed that more than 70% of women and girls around the world suffering from all forms of violence .
The United Nation invited the governments, international organizations and non-governmental ones( NGOs) to make awareness activates among people for realizing the extent of the problems in this day .As women are subjected to rapines , domestic violence , female circumcision and all forms of violence.
The National society for Democracy considers dangerously the noticeable increasing rates of violence phenomenon against women and girls in Palestine generally and Gaza particularly which is expected to lead to expansion of perpetuators of crimes if they are not being arrested .This comes in the light of honor crimes .
We are assuring that violence phenomenon against women due to the negative traditions prevailed in the society that affects negatively on the women because she is considered the weakest figure , sticking by those traditions and the lack of social culture in dealing with women in a male dominated society .
As NSDL we have to deal with this phenomenon and its perpetuators by law and to punish them on their crimes that would harm women . We are very keen to not insult her and to maintain all her rights as well.
According to what mentioned above, we call decision makers to reform and unite laws and criminalize all perpetuators who practiced violence against women .Also to enhance the political , legal and economical role of women in the society to achieve herself in all aspects .
We also call the international society to make a pressure on Israel to stop its crimes on Palestinian people because Israel is considered one of the main reason of increasing violence against women because of the brutal siege and violation of rights.
