Thailand combating violence against women

Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra urges all sectors to join hands in combating violence and pledges assistance to victims of violence.

In September, the Thai premier had advocated the need for equality at the United Nations Human Rights Council‘s 24th Session in Geneva.

Yingluck on Sunday presided over the opening ceremony of an anti-violence project hosted by the Ministry of Social Development and Human Security. The project has the objective to end all forms of violence in the society, especially violence against children and women. All relevant units are also carrying out this campaign throughout November.

The premier stressed that people in the society had to realize that they had the responsibility to fight against violence.

At the ceremony, Yingluck handed anti-violence symbolic flags to representatives of government units, public and private organizations and students. The flags will be displayed in many places across Bangkok.
