IOGT Statement at CSW57
We want to share with you our (oral) statement: "On Comprehensive Action For Eliminating Violence Against Women And Girls"
IOGT International was not given the opportunity to address the CSW57 but we want to publish our statement. We are very proud of it because it has already won endorsement of a number of decision-makers from around the world.
"It is simple really: Seen with the eyes of little girls, of wives and girlfriends, of female co-worker and of ordinary women in the streets of Delhi and Dar Es Salaam, Johannesburg, New York, Berlin, Moscow, Rio or Sydney, seen with the eyes of all these millions of women and girls, the world has an alcohol problem.
"... In a society where Human Rights thrive and where all citizens, no matter the gender, enjoy the same freedoms and opportunities, in such a society women are set free from the burden of alcohol harm."
