Venezuela: Ending domestic violence in Venezuela (summary report)
This document is a summary of the report at AMR 53/001/2008. The introduction in 2007 of the Organic law on the right of women to a life free of violence has helped strengthen women’s access to their human rights in Venezuela. However, there are still large obstacles to ensuring that women can fully exercise their right to live free of violence. Amnesty International calls on the Venezuelan authorities to provide the resources needed to fully implement the 2007 law without delay.
