Bangladesh should take meaningful action to combat sexual violence against women and to support the survivors, said the Human Rights Watch.

“Bangladeshi women have had enough of the government’s abject failure to address repeated rapes and sexual assaults,” Meenakshi Ganguly, South Asia director at the Human Rights Watch, said in a statement on Friday.

“The Bangladesh government needs to finally make good on its empty promises and heed activists’ calls to take meaningful action to combat sexual violence and to support survivors.”
