OIC urges Member States to eliminate all forms of violence against women

The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) urged the OIC Member States to continue measures to address all forms of violence against women, especially some practices that are contrary to the principles of Islamic religion and its values.

The OIC called on its agencies, religious scholars, civil society institutions and the media to exert more efforts in raising awareness, supporting workers in this field in the member states, and initiatives to exchange experience among different bodies to create an environment conducive protecting the women’s rights.
