Chisinau, 25 October /MOLDPRES/ - President Maia Sandu, at the opening of the second international conference for the prevention and combating of violence against girls and women and of the domestic violence, today backed the need of a more active involvement of families and schools in the combating of this phenomenon. The head of state also spoke out for the creation of a generation of educated women, economically independent and professionally self-asserted, the presidential press service has reported.
„During years, courageous women have got, through fight, the right to voting, education and profession. Now, our generation has another fight to wage, with a painful problem for Moldova and for the entire world – the domestic violence,’’ President Maia Sandu said. At the same time, the head of state noted that the violence against women and the domestic violence did not represent a private problem, bur regards us everybody.
According to President Maia Sandu, with the ratification of the Istanbul Convention one year ago, the authorities enforce more measures in the fight against the domestic violence. Nevertheless, to combat this phenomenon, we need the effort of each family. ‘’The girls and boys educated in respect and affection will be able to respect themselves and respect the others. We need also solidarity on behalf of men. The fathers and husbands must get involved in the education of children with respect. Also, the school must be the place where teachers condemn the violence, so that girls and boys are educated in an environment without violence and aggressiveness,’’ the head of state noted.
Maia Sandu also said that, to combat the violence against women and girls, we must provide them with more chances of development and with them – to the entire society. ‘’The more education, economically independent and professionally self-asserted women we have, the stronger and sounder our society will be,’’ President Maia Sandu added.
