Parliamentarians met in Laos last week to discuss violence against women and girls.
The meeting was organized by the Asian Population and Development Association (APDA) and hosted by the National Assembly of Laos.
It was a chance to push parliamentarians to continue developing programs to protect women. For the Members of Parliament (MPs) who participated, it was an opportunity to demonstrate how they are already increasing protections for women and girls who face physical and sexual violence, and to commit to doing even more for their security.
