Censorship on Quora about violence against women and girls
Censorship on Quora
Almost immediately after I post this question.
“Is patriarchy the major cause of violent crimes against women and girls?”
The question was deleted and it appeared as if I deleted this question which is not true.
What is going on?
“Violence against women is one of the most frequent human rights violations. It is a threat to women’s lives, it puts their physical and psychological health at risk, and it is a threat to the well-being of their children, with consequences for the whole community. The perpetrators can be found in every social and economic milieu, and the majority of them are male. The reason: In societies shaped by patriarchy, violence against women is an expression of unequal power relationships between men and women. So the causes of this violence are to be found not only at the individual level but also, and particularly, at the structural level. These causes need to be eliminated in order to prevent further violence. Gender justice cannot be established unless misogynist structures are resolved. Only then will women and girls be able to live a life free of violence.”
From UNODC report the global rate of female victims of violence crimes is 50,000 per 100,000 female population. That is 50% of women were the victims of violent crimes and the perpetrators of these crimes were males.
