Widening the Definition of Domestic Violence in the Women's Charter
Submission to REACH: Public Consultation on the Review of the Women's Charter
PAVE is fully supportive of the amended changes to the Women's Charter.
However in relation to protection for individual and families experiencing domestic violence, we would like to urge MSF to consider including the coverage for protection to Singaporean citizens who not married but are in an interpersonal violent relationship. They should be accorded the same protection as those who are in a legal relationship by marriage.
