NGO holds lecture on violence against women

By Rose B. Palacio

Davao City (14 June) -- Women Network group executive director Sis Josephine Bacaltos, RGS, said several trainings are being undertaken by Womynet for the public to fully understand the implementation of Republic Act 6292, known as the Anti-Violence Against Women and Children Act of 2004.

Former Judge Adoracion Cruz-Avisado will be the guest speaker and lecturer.

RA 6292 penalizes acts of violence against women and their children as a public crime. Before the passage of the law, policemen and law enforcers use to take a hands-off stance in domestic disputes.

But with the passage of RA 6292, any act of violence against women or among their children is now considered a public crime.

A public crime means that any citizen who has personal knowledge of the crime can file a criminal complaint.

These acts include physical violence, sexual violence, psychological violence and economic abuse, including threats of such acts.

Mental infidelity is psychological violence, which is also punishable under this law.

Womynet has conducted series of seminars, trainings and workshops on Anti-Domestic Violence Against Women and their Children sponsored by the Davao City Water District and Womynet staff acting as the Secretariat.

Barangay captains, council members, members of the Lupong Tagapayapa, media and personnel of the CSSDO and the city office of the DILG including members of the Philippine National Police participated in the series of seminars on anti-violence law sponsored by Womynet and DCWD. (PIA XI) [top]
