International Women's Day: Violence against Indigenous Women and Girls in Bangladesh

08-03-2016

A hundred years have passed since the first commemoration of International Women’s Day. Today we are celebrating women who are struggling for equality and advocating against injustice. 

There is a great need in Bangladesh to specifically address violence against indigenous women and girls as they often do not benefit from protection mechanisms and access to justice in the face of violence. The solution is a comprehensive national response which includes indigenous women and girls in the formulation, monitoring and execution.
