‘No excuse for violence’

Social Share

Violence against women is “never acceptable, never excusable, never tolerable”.
Speaker of the House of Assembly Michael Carrington emphasized this point yesterday as he joined the call for an end to violence against women.     He was echoing a statement by United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki Moon on United Nations International Day For The Elimination Of Violence Against Women And Girls, observed yesterday.
“I am saying to you today that is where we stand as a Parliament, that is where I stand personally,” Carrington said as he joined UN Women representative for the Multi-Country Office for the Caribbean, Christine Arab, in launching a jointly-sponsored exhibition signalling 16 days of activism to end violence against women and girls.
The display of literature is mounted in the lobby of the West Wing of Parliament until December 10 and the public is being encouraged to visit.
