End Gender Based Violence in Somaliland

(Medeshi)- Press release 
Commemoration of 8th March: End Gender Based Violence in Somaliland
 

Every year the International Women’s Day is commemorated across the world on 8th March. Women in Somaliland are not celebrating for victory. Many impediments are hampering women to exercise fundamental freedoms and rights granted to them by Somaliland constitution and international human rights instruments.     
 Women are suffering female gentile mutilation, domestic violence, rape and other forms of violence.  “Human Rights Centre urges the government of Somaliland to fight gender based violence and gender inequality” says Guleid Ahmed Jama, HRC chairperson. “The clan leaders continue to obstruct justice for victims of gender based violence. They shall not be allowed to interfere in criminal proceedings against perpetrators of gender based violence” he adds.   
The theme for the International Women’s Day 2015 is “Empowering Women-Empowering Humanity: Picture it”.  Human Rights Center calls on the political parties, the parliament and the government to increase women’s political participation. Women are underrepresented in all ranks of public offices and private employment.

War-saxaafadeed
Xuska 8 March: Ha laga cidhib tiro Somaliland tacadiga ka dhanka ah dumarka   
Sanad walba waxa laga xusaa dunida oo dhan 8 March Maalinta Caalamiga ah ee Haweenka. Haweenka Somaliland uma dabaal degayaan guul. Caqabado badan ayaa ka hortaagan inay helaan xorriyadaha iyo xuquuqaha aasaasiga ah ee dastuurka Somaliland iyo xeerarka caalamiga ahi siiyeen.
Haween bay dhibaato ka soo gaadhaa gudniin, garaacis, kufsi iyo tacadiyo kale. Xarunta Xuquuqal Insaanku waxay u soo jeedinaysaa dawladda Somaliland inay la dagaalanto tacadiyada ka dhanka ah haweenka. Hogaamiyayaasha qabiilada ayaa ku ah caqabad in haweenku helaan cadaalad. Waa inaan loo ogolaan in hogaamiyayaasha qabiiladu ay faro-geliyaan dacwadaha ciqaabta ah ee lagu soo oogo dadka gala dacadiyada ka dhanka ah haweenka. 
Hal ku dhegga sanadkani (2015) waa “Dumarka oo la Awoodsiyaa waa Banii-adantinimada oo la Awood siiyay: Bal Sawiro”. Xarunta Xuquuqal Insaanku waxay ka codsanaysaa xisbiyada siyaasadda, baarlamaanka iyo dawladda inay kor u qaadaan ka qabygalka haweenku ku leeyihiin siyaasadda. Haweenku aad bay ugu yar yihiin saraakiisha sar sare ee dawladda iyo shaqaalaha, ha noqdaan kuwa dawladda iyo goobaha gaarka loo leeyahayba.
