Gender Violence: Religious leaders must break their silence – The Caribbean Voice

 By The Caribbean Voice

On July 24, 2015 the Baltimore Sun carried a commentary, which stated, “Gender violence causes more death and disability among women aged 15 to 44 in the U.S. than cancer, malaria, traffic accidents or war.” Added the report, “Currently our military and universities are actively seeking solutions to prevent and respond to this violence within their respective institutions.”

For The Caribbean Voice, addressing gender based violence is critical not only because of its devastation on lives and families, but also because suicide is related to gender based violence in a huge way. Oftentimes, females are murdered by their partners, who then commit suicide. Also, females are far too often abused by their partners, and this often leads to an escalation of violence as well as suicide.

    Regulate the alcohol business and ban anyone who acts unruly and drunk despite warnings of drinking too much.
