The North American President described the violence that women and girls around the world continue to suffer as an “abhorrent abuse of human rights”.

The President also denounced that, especially in conflict zones, countless women and girls suffer at the hands of “perpetrators who commit gender-based violence and use rape as a weapon of war”.
