"Intimate partner abuse, workplace sexual harassment, sexist jokes and even sexual assaults are played down and minimized".

"In marking the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, the United Nations unequivocally condemns all violence targeting women and girls across Syria and calls on all parties to prevent these violations", the RHC said.

According to the data shared, 7,313 cases of violence against women were reported in 2016 as compared to 6,505 cases in 2015. UNDP is committed to continuing working with sister agencies, in particular UN Women and UNFPA, and with governments and civil society partners, including men, to prevent and address the violence that affects millions of women around the world.

He said violence against women, both physical and mental, "happens everywhere and its consequences last for generations", and "this poses threats to social fabrics of societies around the globe".

Recent reports of violence against and sexual harassment of women in some countries have sparked a global outcry, including many reports and commentaries.
