Date: 22nd February, 2014
Venue: Rajiv Gandhi National University of Law, Punjab
The seminar will focus on some vital issues reflecting crimes against women as there is need to break the silence and ensure that crimes against women are not just a
woman's issue but primarily a political, social, economic and cultural issue that concerns men as well. While men represent the majority of perpetrators of crimes against women, they have an important role to play in preventing and combating violence against women. Because of the roles of male in the society as fathers, husbands, brothers, and sons, men and young boys they should be part of finding solution to the problem of crimes against women and thus be involved in eliminating crimes. If men feel involved, they should help promote changes in attitudes among other men. It is not women or men working alone to end gender-based violence that yields the best results
