Hold Myanmar Military Accountable for Violence Against Women

Marking the 65th session of the Commission on the Status of Women, Women’s Refugee Commission joined the Women’s Peace Network and more than 180 organizations in a letter calling upon the United Nations (UN) Security Council to hold the Myanmar military accountable for grievously violating the human rights of women. Since the military’s illegitimate seizure of power on February 1, the people of Myanmar have led nationwide mass movements to demand for the November 2020 election results to be respected, the 2008 Constitution to be abolished, a federal democratic union to be built with full equality and self-determination, and those arbitrarily detained and arrested to be released.
