At the group’s debut ceremony in Hanoi on May 18, Nguyen Thi Thu Ha, President of the Vietnam Women’s Union, the group was established amid increasing violence against girls and women.

She stressed the vulnerable group needs more access to self-protection and anti-violence services, including legal ones.

In addition to its consultation function, the group will join in the organisation of relevant forums to share information and put forth suitable measures.

Elisa Fernandez, UN Women Head of Office in Vietnam, said her agency has worked with the VWU for years to eradicate violence targeting against girls and women, which she said is a violation of human’s rights, causing physical and psychological damage.

She praised the union’s initiative and pledged her commitment to bilateral collaboration of the two sides in this regards.

According to police statistics, there were more than 4,100 child sexual abuse cases recorded for 2014 – 2016, with girls accounting for 80 percent of the victims. The figure was 805 in the first half of 2017.

The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) said up to 70 percent of Vietnamese children were victims of family violence.-VNA

"... 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 ..."
