Joint Statement of SRI and COC Netherlands during the panel discussion on women’s human rights

Delivered by Meghan Doherty, ACPD (Canada)

Thank you Madam President

We welcome this panel’s focus on reparations for women subjected to violence and the recognition that, given the disparate and differentiated impact that violence has on women, especially marginalized women, including sexually marginalized women, there is a need for specific measures of redress in order to meet their specific needs and priorities.
