The Gender Affairs Division, within the Ministry of National Mobilization calls for Vincentians to seek professional help in light of their problems.
Co-ordinator, of the Gender Affairs Division, Mrs. Polly Olliver has condemned the recent violence, saying it is an infringement of a person’s right.
In a written statement, Mrs. Olliver said that despite much progress, domestic violence remains amongst the greatest challenges of our times.
Fed by deeply embedded discrimination against women and girls, violence against women under-cuts peace and restricts the quality of life for those involved.
This, the Gender Affairs Co-ordinator said, is not only wrong and costly, but it also undermines efforts to achieving development goals, and increases gaps for access and fulfillment of women’s rights.
