The Holy See encouraged the Unites Nations to get to the roots of discrimination and violence against women.
The Holy See’s permanent observer to the UN said “women bear the brunt of the world’s child prostitution, sexual exploitation, abuse, domestic violence, child labor and human trafficking. In order to put an end to the violation of human rights of trafficked women and girls, it is not enough to sensationalize their tragic plight, rather there is needed to trace the question back to the market that exist due to the demand which makes such trade possible and profitable.”
