The International Federation of Women Lawyers on Thursday urged men to desist from domestic violence against women.
 

Mrs Ngozi Ikenga, the Chairperson of the group, Abuja chapter, made the appeal in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja.
 

Ikenga noted that some women were unaware of their rights or where to seek redress when their rights were infringed.
``We sensitise men to proper treatment of women, which is with respect and not as punching bags; because when the home is peaceful the society will be at peace,’’ she said.
 

According to her, FIDA goes to schools in the six area councils of the FCT to sensitise men on women and child’s right act.
``FIDA is concerned with the welfare of women and children especially the indigent women in the society.
``We are mainly concerned with those who cannot access justice on their own because of financial constraints,’’ Ikenga said.
 

She said FIDA shared over 100 copies of Child Rights Act to the Junior Secondary School in Wuse Zone 1 during the children’s day celebration.
 

Besides, Ikenga said FIDA sensitises people at the grassroots on zero tolerance to violence.
``We do pro-bono cases for women and children and push for bills at the National Assembly that would enhance the achievement of our vision.’’
 

She also said FIDA Nigeria had embarked on a programme called ``sustainable development’’ for women all through 2030.
``FIDA Friends Group is a cooperative society organised to also assist women especially in the area of agriculture to enhance economic growth in the society,’’ said the chairperson.
