President of the National Women’s Commission, Thea-Garcia Ramirez, says that the revised policy aims to tackle the rampant problem of gender-based violence before it even escalates to a physical altercation. She says that they are also putting the focus on males by providing them with counselling and education to make sure that they don’t go down a violent path.
