Les inégalités entre les femmes et les hommes sont à la fois la cause et la conséquence des violences faites aux femmes et aux filles. Forte de ce constat, Oxfam lance aujourd’hui une campagne internationale : **« Ça suffit ! Ensemble, mettons fin aux violences faites aux femmes et aux filles »**. Il s’agit d’en finir avec l’une des violations des droits humains les plus répandues dans le monde.

Gender inequality is both the cause and the consequence of violence against women and girls, said Oxfam today, as the agency launches a new global campaign called “Enough: Together We Can End Violence Against Women and Girls” to stop one of the most prolific human rights violations.

Cela ne semblait pas poser de problème tant que les cours mondiaux des produits alimentaires étaient bas et stables pendant les décennies 80 et 90.
