UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon has called for an end to violence against girls.
He says many adolescent girls are beaten, raped or even murdered in the world due to a culture of impunity from family members, partners and teachers who violate the rights of the girl-child.
He says girls must be equipped with knowledge, resources and power to determine their own path in life.
Mr Ban Ki-Moon made the remarks in a statement to mark the International Day of the Girl-child, which is celebrated on the 11th of October to recognize girls’ rights and highlight the challenges girls face worldwide.
This year focuses on “empowering adolescent girls: ending the cycle of violence.”
