Advocating for New Laws on Violence Against Women

Through the Legislation Module, a reference to particular provisions or sections of a piece of legislation, part of a legal judgment, or aspect of a practice doesn’t suggest that the laws, judgment, or practice is considered in its entirety for a great example or a promising practice.

A few of the laws mentioned herein may contain provisions that authorize the death penalty. In light of the United Nations General Assembly resolutions calling for a moratorium on and eventual abolition of capital punishment, the death penalty shouldn’t be included in sentencing provisions for crimes of violence against girls and women.
