Responding to Justine Greening's speech promising to tackle violence against women, Sue Turrell, Oxfam's Deputy International Director, said: 

"We are delighted Justine Greening has promised to do more to tackle the 'pandemic' of violence against women in Afghanistan and beyond.

"Helping women assert themselves in the home and workplace benefits both women themselves, and by unlocking their potential, their communities and the wider economy."
