Violence Against Women
Sexual violence and exploitation, associated psychological trauma, and the risk of sexually transmitted diseases, are among the terrible dangers confronting women today. Violence takes many forms-trafficking in persons, domestic violence, rape, and harmful traditional practices such as female genital mutilation and honor crimes, it shatters the most fundamental human right to which every woman is entitled: the right to be safe. The most egregious violation of human rights is the modern-day slavery of human trafficking which affects hundreds of thousands of persons each year, mostly women and children, depriving them of basic freedom and inflicting unspeakable physical and emotional harm.
