High Commissioner for Human Rights speech 25 November

November 28, 2013 at 10:57 AM

You can read UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay's full statement she delievered on 25th November 2013 here.

HC Pillay reminds us that violence against women remains one of the greatest scourges of our time. She finds it 'disgraceful that even today, many women and girls everywhere, violence is lurking around street corners, in workplaces or in their very own homes. And too often, justice is elusive."

One of the two incidents she cited in this statement is ... "in Auckland, New Zealand, when a 13 year-old girl had gone to the police to report that she had been raped by three young men, one of the first questions she was reportedly asked was 'What were you wearing?'. Two years later. after many similar attacks by the same gang, it took a public expose to rattle the authori ties into action."
