UN ramps up message on prevention of violence against women in Laos

VIENTIANE (Vientiane Times/ANN) – Village authorities will spread the word about eliminating violence against women, hoping to change attitudes and put a stop to the abuse of women and girls.

Rural people know little about the Law on the Development and Protection of Women and it is not enforced in their communities, so domestic violence continues.
