He stressed that cities of developed countries are usually very inclusive

Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC) Mayor Md Atiqul Islam has said they are working to build Dhaka as an inclusive city so that people from all walks of life can commute safely and easily.

“The city will be men, women, children, old and differently-abled people- friendly. Dhaka will be an inclusive city while every person can commute through road and pavement safely,” he said this at a press conference marking the campaign for 16 Days of Activism in Dhaka on Tuesday. 

Atiqul stressed that cities of developed countries are often very inclusive, reports UNB.

“DNCC will set up a complaints box in every ward, public places, markets and shopping complexes to stop all sort of violence. We took the initiative to ensure the safety and rights of women, children and differently-abled people. It will help to achieve SDGs too,” he further said.

He added that a two day long campaign will be held from November 29 to 30 at Shaheed Tajuddin Ahmad Smriti Park in Gulshan. Speaker of the Jatiya Sangsad Shirin Sharmin Chaudhury and Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen are expected to be present there.

Starting on this year's International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women on November 25, the international campaign called "16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence" will continue until December 10, which is International Human Rights Day.

Under this year’s theme “Orange the World: Generation Equality Stands against Rape,” the campaign focuses on the necessity of ending the rape culture and highlights rape as a specific form of abuse inflicted on women and girls in times of both peace or war.

World Health Organization (WHO) has been calling for more action to prevent and end violence against women and children.
