She says men need to understand that they do not have any right to inflict violence on women and girls.

Ali has also called on all of society and service providers, including the police, justice, and health systems, to ensure women and their concerns are treated seriously and gender-sensitive, appropriate measures are in place for better access to justice.

She is also encouraging men who want to learn more about prevention and response to these heinous crimes against women and girls to contact FWCC.
