蓬佩奥就“制止暴力侵害妇女行为国际日”发表声明
The International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women

[2018年11月24日] 来源:Washington, DC 作者:Michael R. Pompeo   字号 [] [] []  

Violence against women is a global issue that affects millions of people annually. Every woman and girl deserves a life free from violence. The United States is committed to advancing gender equality and preventing and responding to all forms of violence against women and girls, from domestic and sexual violence to forced marriage and so-called honor killings.

Eliminating violence against women and girls requires all of us—governments, the private sector, civil society, and faith-based organizations—to take action. To help bring attention to this global challenge, the United States is proud to observe the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women on November 25 and the accompanying 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence.

The United States is proud to take action on “Ending Gender-Based Violence in the World of Work,” this year’s theme for the 16 Days of Activism. Societies that empower women to participate fully in civic and economic life are more prosperous and peaceful. Ending violence within and beyond the workplace can ensure women unlock their potential as leaders, entrepreneurs, and innovators. The United States is committed to bringing workforce development and skills training to women and girls, advancing women’s entrepreneurship and expanding access to capital, and eliminating gender discrimination in the workplace.

暴力侵害妇女的行为是一个全球性的问题,每年导致数百万妇女受害。每位妇女和女童都有免受暴力侵害的权利。美国致力于推进性别平等,防范妇女和女童遭受各种形式的暴力侵害,并对此做出反应。女性遭受的暴力侵害包括家庭暴力、性侵犯、强迫婚姻和所谓的荣誉处决。

消除针对妇女和女童的暴力行为,需要我们所有人--政府、民营部门、公民社会和信仰团体都采取行动。为了帮助关注这个全球性挑战,美国每年11月25日都纪念“制止暴力侵害妇女行为国际日”以及随之而来的“反对性别暴力侵害的16个行动日”,并引以为荣。

美国今年的“反对性别暴力侵害的16个行动日”的主题是“终止世界职场的性别暴力侵害”,并计划自豪地采取行动。凡是让妇女有权全面参与公民与经济生活的社会都会更加繁荣和平。终止职场内外的暴力行为能够确保妇女充分发挥领导、创业与创新的潜能。美国致力于让妇女和女孩接受职场开发与技能的培训,提高妇女创业能力,增加妇女创业资本,彻底消除职场的性别歧视。
