President Zourabichvili: ‘When a Women is Killed Because She is a Women, It’s a Problem of Society’

Any kind of violence against women is unacceptable. All cases of murder are horrible facts. However, when the victim is murdered because of the fact that she is a woman, this becomes a problem of our society.
The active engagement of the state, education, culture, and the consolidation of our society are all decisive steps that must be taken.
It is of vital importance to raise public awareness. The joint work and efforts of state, public, and religious organizations are crucial if we want to end the violence.
The President will be meeting with state, international and non-governmental organizations working on violence against women at the Orbeliani Palace next week, during which possible initiatives and needs to tackle the issue will be discussed.
