The violence between women does not cause concern, and may be related to the following reasons: First, we are currently facing the most important gender violence is still male violence against women. World Health Organization published in 2014 global survey data show that; male violence against women is very common. [footnoteRef:0]An average of 35 percent of women worldwide have suffered sexual violence or non-partner sexual violence from intimate partners, up to 71 per cent in Ethiopia, 38 percent of women’s murders have come from intimate partners. Second, though the cultural backgrounds of these studies differed widely, [footnoteRef:1]the study samples included Western developed countries such as the United States, Britain, and Canada, as well as India, Congo, Uganda, and Kenya, but cross-cultural statistical results have come to a surprisingly unanimous conclusion: in all homicide cases, male perpetrators accounted for more than 90 percent of the total, while women only less than 10 percent.
This is not only in violent crimes, in some acts of insanity caused by insignificant little things, as well as on school violence and war behavior is also true. Third, the violence of women is destructive to society and the risk to others is small. [footnoteRef:2]Anthropologist Montagu using the oldest literature study pointed out that in the history of mankind 5600 years occurred in a total of 14,600 large-scale war, an average of 2.6 games per year, but no war is launched by women and organized. Moreover, women rarely have direct physical attacks on others, even if there is, and the physical damage to others is not so obvious and serious. [footnoteRef:3]Some countries have also adopted methods to protect victims, such as Canada. The construction of a heavily guarded shelter in Canada to provide assistance to women in many provinces of Canada has promulgated the Anti-Domestic Violence Act and the Emergency Protection Order.

Limited to a period of time not allowed to go home, so as not to continue to abuse his wife until the police believe that the lifting of the threat of violence so far. [0: ] [1: ] [2: ] [3: ]
On the other hand, the campus gender violence that is one of the manifestations of gender violence. In recent years by the international community began to pay high attention. Campus gender violence occurs on campus and its surrounding areas. [footnoteRef:4]The UNESCO’s new document has a new revelation of the characteristics of gender-based violence on campus. Manifestations include bullying, sexual harassment, seduction, and sexual harassment, as well as violence against sex and sex. [footnoteRef:5]Campus gender violence can occur between students, may also occur between teachers and students, between students lover into the campus between the off-campus staff and students. Campus gender violence endangers students’ physical and mental health, academic, interpersonal relationships, values. Strategies to deal with gender-based violence, including prevention, suppression, punishment, and the establishment of support systems for the treatment of victims.
Discrimination against women and girls has become a source of gender violence against boys when trafficking in boys and boys. It is important to stress that violence against women is the most important issue of gender-based violence. On the one hand, reflects the state of power control and inequality, and on the other, the resulting health, social and economic consequences severely restricting the equal participation of women. The root causes of gender violence are unequal gender relations, and gender violence is closely related to traditional gender role norms and gender power relations. Women, girls, men and boys are likely to be victims of gender-based violence, but most of the victims of gender-based violence are women and girls, due to unequal distribution of power in society. Some recent news also reflects the violence that people bring to the hurt. [footnoteRef:6]Such as, “Domestic violence support staff hope to further prevent through education on April 26”, “Colorado man killed a strange wife and buried her in the grave of World War II Veterans on March 31”, and “N.B. enacted legislation to help victims of domestic violence on February 17”.

In summary, stop violence against women and require male participation. In this process, we can not see men as iron slaves. There are also differences within the male, it may become violent. If ignore the interests of men, will hinder the promotion of male participation. In addition, gender mainstreaming and gender transitivity can not be ignored today. Sexual violence can not ignore violence against gender, male and female. Opposition to gender violence requires the widest possible alliance, which first requires us to be concerned about the rights and interests of all those who are subjected to gender-based violence; this will not only enhance the importance of long-neglected gender-based violence against women, The goal of opposing gender violence is truly realized.
