The Government’s Commitment Is Clear, There Should Be No Violence Against Women


Suara.com – Deputy V of the Presidential Staff Office (KSP) Jaleswari Pramodhawardani emphasized that the commitment of President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) and the Indonesian government in ensuring the promotion and protection of the rights of Indonesian women was clear.

Jaleswari said this in commemoration of the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women.

“There should be no discrimination, there should be no violence against women anywhere. This is the right moment for us to jointly voice a positive campaign against violence against women,” said Jaleswari, Thursday (11/25/2021).

Jaleswari said that women’s rights are an integral part of the principles of human rights enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

However, said Jaleswari, in practice women are still the target of gender-based violence and unequal power relations. So the United Nations needs to pay special attention to women.

One of them is the commemoration of the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women on 25 November.

Based on data from the National Commission on Violence Against Women (Komnas Perempuan), from 2020 to June 2021, there were 301,878 cases of violence experienced by women. This shows that violence against women must be addressed immediately.

Indeed, Jaleswari said, from a regulatory perspective, Indonesia already has several legal instruments that emphasize efforts to eliminate violence against women.

However, according to Jaleswari, the current regulations are still partial and not comprehensive. Therefore, there is a need for reforms and breakthroughs in strengthening these legal instruments.
