“I appealed for an end to violence everywhere, now. But violence is not confined to the battlefield. For many women and girls, the threat looms largest where they should be safest. In their own homes.”
- ANTÓNIO GUTERRES, UN SECRETARY-GENERAL
The United Nations calls on Samoa to uphold its commitment to ending all forms of violence against women and girls, including violent threats, intimidation, verbal and physical harassment and abuse and stands ready to support all actors in their efforts to achieve this goal.
