"Dating violence among youth is a serious problem in Viet Nam.
Presented with the findings, the CEDAW Committee recommends revision of the national law to penalize all forms of violence against women, including dating violence."Dating violence is closely linked to gender stereotypes and social norms that normalize and condone controlling behaviors and violence by partners.Often, the same norms also place the blame on the women,” says Shoko Ishikawa, Country Representative of UN Women in Viet Nam.The survey is part of a larger effort to monitor CEDAW implementation in Viet Nam by the leading civil society networks.“We know that challenging social norms and gender stereotypes is not a simple task.Change, presented the findings of the survey to the CEDAW Committee—a group of independent experts who monitor the implementation of the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW), which Viet Nam has ratified—during its 61st session in Geneva, Switzerland.
Their successful advocacy led to the inclusion of dating violence in the Committee’s concluding observations, asking the Government of Viet Nam to review the criminal law and penalize all forms of violence against women, including dating violence. Change survey and advocacy has been supported by UN Women’s Fund for Gender Equality, as part of a project on strengthening the voices of young women as gender equality advocates in Southeast Asia, implemented by International Women Rights Action Watch Asia Pacific (IWRAW-AP) in close cooperation with the Research Center for Gender, Family and Environment in Development (CGFED) in Viet Nam.
