Allison On Violence Against Girls

By David Seedee, LINA Bomi County Correspondent

TUBMANBURG, June 21 (LINA) – The Acting Head of the United Nations Mission in Liberia (UNMIL) Field Office  in Tubmanburg, Bomi County, Frances Allison, says violence against the girl child has become a major challenge in Liberia.

Madam Allison said any act of violence against girls does not only affect them physically, but also psychologically, emotionally and eternally.

Madam Allison said it would also negatively impact on the child’s growth and embarrass them in various capacities.

According to the Liberia News Agency, Madam Allison made the statement recently when she served as keynote speaker at a program marking the launch of the Anti-violence Against Girls Campaign in Tubmanburg.

She maintained that Liberia, like most African countries, has a large number of girl children whose rights are more violated than those of boys in every area.

Meanwhile, Madam Allison has urged boys to help in the fight to curb violence against the girl child.

She urged them to consider girls as their partners in progress and feel obligated to protect them at all times.

According to Madam Allison, the fight to stop violence against girls should not be left with the Government and civil society alone, but must become the concern of every citizen in Bomi County.
