Men urged to start respecting women

Men are urged to start respecting women and not to see them as worthless.

National Capital District Governor Powes Parkop called on men, during the recent gender-based violence protest, to change their behaviour and mentality towards women.

Parkop urged them to start appreciating women and see them as partners in the family, community and society.

“More importantly, see them as human beings having equal human rights and that women’s right is also their human right,” Parkop stated.

“We all created the problem of gender-based violence and contribute to it so we all must take action.”

The governor said behaviour is the main factor in this issue.

“We need to change men’s behaviour to start respecting the women more and we all, as leaders, must do our part to help change and influence them.”
