Does the government care in Russia - fact sheet about violence against women - 2006.
The Russian Federation does not have a specialized government body with the authority and resources to function as gender equality machinery. There are several institutions established to address women’s human rights in Russia, such as the Committee on Women, Family and Youth of the State Duma, and the Interagency Commission on Equality between Men and Women. However, violence against women is still not on the agenda of these institutions, they do not have special tasks regarding this phenomenon, nor are they allocated an appropriate budget for this work. The only governmental multi-agency commission on domestic violence, sexual violence and trafficking that was working under the Ministry for Internal Affairs ceased to exist in 2005.
Does the government care in Russia. Domestic violence in Russia - report 2007.
Violence against women is a global epidemic, constituting the serious violation of women’s human rights and fundamental freedoms. Combating this phenomenon has been one of the main priority areas of the Network Women’s Program (NWP) of the Open Society Institute since its establishment in 1998. NWP’s main activities in this field included initiating, managing and supporting several international projects,1 by acquiring and transferring knowledge throughout the regions where OSI has traditionally worked.2 The activities of NWP in the field of violence against women were transformed into a separate program, the Violence against Women (VAW) Monitoring Program, which operated until the end of 2006.
Rejecting 'cultural' justifications for violence against women.
On 25 Feb 2008, the UN Secretary-General’s Campaign to End Violence Against Women was launched to support the implementation of the UN Secretary-General’s In-depth Study on All Forms of Violence Against Women (July 2006). This In-depth Study led the General Assembly to adopt on 30 January 2007, a very significant Resolution called Intensification of efforts to eliminate all forms of violence against women.
Reporting Gender Based Violence.
Inter Press Service has long sought to support and strengthen informed reporting on gender across the world – making a commitment to improve the coverage of women in developing countries as early as 1975 at the UN Decade for Women conference held in Mexico. Since then, IPS has become a leading producer of tools for effective gender reporting. Journalism, however, is a dynamic profession and our challenges are ever changing.
