The Secretary of state made a statement on the International Day for the elimination of violence against women.
US Secretary of state Mike Pompeo released a statement on the International Day for the elimination of violence against women, which is celebrated on November 25. “The United States is proud to reaffirm its commitment to fighting for the right of women and girls around the world to live free from violence,” the Secretary of state said. – The United States recognizes the inherent dignity of every woman and girl and is committed to protecting the safety of women and girls around the world and cultivating their development as the future leaders of our world.”
Pompeo noted that gender-based violence is a global problem that millions of women and girls face every year in all spheres of life – education, work, family. According to him, this problem “undermines peace and security and weakens the social ties that unite families and communities, prevents countries from achieving social stability and economic development.” “Eliminating gender-based violence requires coordinated efforts and the unwavering resolve of States, the private sector and civil society,” Pompeo said.
