Yesterday marked the launch of 16 days of activism at the Institute for Technical and Vocational Education and Training (ITVET). The goal of the sixteen days of activism is to highlight the importance of eliminating all forms of gender-based violence. Special Envoy for women and children along with the National Women’s Commission hosted the event under the theme “From Awareness to accountability unmasking the many faces of violence.” Special envoy for women and children, Kim Simplis Barrow, stated that different organizations are working tirelessly to put an end to gender-based violence.

Kim Simplis Barrow, Special Envoy for Women and Children: “As I stand firm and tall before you all today, human, woman and proud let it resonate within all of us that gender based violence has no boundaries. It knows no bounds of socioeconomic status, education, religion, culture or age. It all comes down to one denominator and that is the gender dynamics; and at the core of gender dynamics are issues of power and control. We all know that gender is not restricted to women, we are all aware that there are many men and boys who do fall victim to gender based violence but let us not shy away from the fact that year after year in Belize and in every corner of the globe that the vast majority of perpetrators of gender based violence are men and the vast majority of victims are women and girls. Gender based violence is a term so frequently used in today’s society yet it is no surprise that many have never taken the time to truly ponder the severity and predominance of this human rights issue that has affected and resulted in the loss of lives of many women and girls in our country.”

According to Barrow, thirty-five percent of women have experienced physical or sexual intimate partner or non-partner violence.
