Harper Government Taking Action To Address Violence Against Women And Girls

Minister Ambrose led Canadian delegation on International Stage to Address Violence Against Women and Girls

OTTAWA, March 5, 2013 /CNW/ - The Honourable Rona Ambrose, Minister of Public Works and Government Services and Minister for Status of Women, led Canada's delegation to the 57 th meeting of the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women (UNCSW) in New York from March 4 to 6, 2013 to address ending violence against women and girls.

"The Harper Government is taking action to end violence against women and girls and I am pleased to lead a Canadian delegation to address this issue on the international stage," said Minister Ambrose. "In Canada, we are investing in projects aimed at ending violence in communities across the country. On the international stage, our Government led the United Nations resolution to establish the International Day of the Girl and we will continue to work to prevent sexual violence against women in conflict zones, end the practice of early and forced marriages, and advocate for the rights of women around the world."

While at the United Nations, Minister Ambrose highlighted the Harper Government's commitment to ending violence against women and girls at home and abroad and Canada's theme for International Women's Week 2013, Working Together: Engaging Men to End Violence against Women. Minister Ambrose co-hosted panels with the United States and Canadian non-governmental organizations on violence committed in the name of so-called "honour" and engaging men and boys in violence prevention, respectively. Minister Ambrose also spoke at the high level roundtable on the elimination and prevention of all forms of violence against women and girls.

During this year's UNCSW session, Minister Ambrose held bilateral meetings with representatives of other Member states and met with a number of Canadian non-governmental organizations, and provincial and territorial counterparts to exchange knowledge and expertise on ending all forms violence against women and girls. The Minister underscored that violence against women is an issue for everyone to address - women and men, girls and boys alike.
