This week, United Nations Member States are due to adopt a resolution on ending all forms of violence against women and girls. The focus of the resolution is on ensuring accountability for acts of sexual and gender-based violence. Amnesty International is urging all Member States to support a strong resolution in line with their international obligations to uphold the human rights of all women and girls, as well as to prevent, investigate, punish and redress all forms of violence against women and girls.
