Gender Violence, Rape And Sexual Assault, We Will Punish The Perpetrators
Gender based violence, rape and sexual assault have no place in our society. It is unacceptable behavior and a blemish on our collective humanity and dignity as a people and as a nation.
I had the opportunity to discuss rape and gender based violence with the National Human Rights Commission at a virtual meeting today. We will continue to work with all actors to detect & punish the perpetrators of these sickening acts & work even harder to prevent their occurrence.
We will also continue to use the platform of the National Economic Council to encourage States who are yet to domesticate the Violence Against Person’s Prohibition Act of 2015 and the Child Rights Act of 2003 to do so.
