Pro-democracy activists had called on the world community to help in resolving the military regime’s targeted attacks and violence against women.
Women have suffered more from the violence of military regimes during the coup d’état. The Military Regime has been committing crimes against women, such as arbitrary abductions and beatings, killings, imprisonment, and sexual assaults of women who opposed the dictatorship.
At least 100 women were arbitrarily detained every month, and at least 10 of them have been killed by intentionally and unintentionally gunfire by the Junta Forces after the military coup, according to women’s groups.
That is why the military regime needs to end violence against women immediately as well as the world community needs to prohibit their violent actions against women, said pro-democracy activist, Ms. Kalayar Kyaw Myo.
Each individual needs to stop killing those who are weaker than them, as well as the whole society needs to prohibit those actions. The whole world also needs to focus on the women of Myanmar and prohibit such crimes against women.
Currently, women have lost their rights, such as freedom of movement, as they have been abducted as hostages, unreasonably abducted, tortured and killed, and are targeted for surveillance.
Among them, women in prison have been facing mental and physical abuse as well as sexual assault.
Furthermore, women are not treated for menstrual problems, and pregnant women’s rights, such as maternity, are violated.
Women’s rights activists urged recording in detail the process of crimes against women by the Military Regime in order to bring them to justice in the future.
