Da Nang acts on family violence

A seminar, “The man’s role in the economic development and building of happy, wealthy families,” led by Secretary of the Danang Party Committee Nguyen Ba Thanh, was attended by nearly 130 brutal husbands on August 5.

Secretary of Danang Party Committee Nguyen Ba Thanh (R) considers a petition of borrowing capital for home business of a household.

According to the secretary, family violence has become publicly unacceptable, as people previously believed that such actions were just personal and family problems.

The reason behind family violence is due to low educational levels and poverty, which have made husbands take up affairs, drink too much or gamble and leads to them beating and abusing their wives.

Such brutal and uncivilized behavior is not acceptable, Mr. Thanh added, husbands could be imprisoned for breaking the Family Violence Prevention Law. The authorities should seek immediate treatment for family violence.

A husband, and father, takes an important role in supporting his family, bringing up the children and building a happy, wealthy family, he concluded.

The secretary stressed that local authorities should create jobs and lend capital for home business to help disadvantaged households improve the quality of their life.

Lawyer Do Phap said that the talk was very interesting and useful. It helped husbands realize their responsibilities and the provincial government’s interest in protecting against family violence.

At the end of the meeting, the husbands signed a pledge that they will make all efforts to prove their role in the economic development and building a happy, wealthy family.
