Public awareness of domestic violence rising
Posted: Apr 05,2010

The Vietnam Women’s Union Central Committee has coordinated with the Spanish Agency for International Cooperation and Development in a project to combat domestic violence.

The project was announced in Hanoi on March 15, with the aim of increasing financial capacity to reduce domestic violence. It will also help increase public awareness.

The project gives a new approach to prevent domestic violence in Vietnam, said Nguyen Thi Thanh Hoa, head of the Vietnam Women’s Union. “Most victims of domestic violence are women, so the Vietnam Women’s Union considers protecting women as its major task,” she said. “The Union has organised many activities to fight domestic violence and cooperate with local police to deal with violations.”

The two-year project is divided into two phases, with the first to be carried out at the central level and in four provinces and cities namely Bac Ninh, Da Nang, Kon Tum and Can Tho. Under the project, officers of local women’s unions will be provided with various ways to mobilise financial sources and get better knowledge of the law on domestic violence.

Benito Alvarez Fernadez, chief representative of the Spanish Agency for International Cooperation and Development in Vietnam, stressed the need to apply a new comprehensive approach to ensure gender equality in Vietnam.

"... From the beginning of the first century A.D., when the two Trung Sisters rose up to fight the enemy and save the nation, until now, whenever our country has faced danger, our women have contributed whatever they could toward the cause of national liberation.

Our people are grateful that our mothers from South and North alike have borne and raised our nation's generation of heroes....

Under the Socialist system, tens of thousands of women have become specialists in different fields and, as cadre, serve as directors and vice-directors of factories, leaders of farming cooperatives, presidents of People’s Committees, and general secretaries of Party Cells....

And so, the women of Vietnam from ancient times until now, from South to North, from young to old, are truly heroes ..."
