Corporal Punishment of Children
24 July 1989
The 24th Triennial Congress of the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom, 14-25 July, 1989 in Sydney, Australia:
In many countries of the earth the use of corporal punishment in child-raising and education is still widespread. So far there are few existing studies concerning the actual extent of this practice. In spite of this there is a growing conviction among many people that this use is connected with the acceptance of other forms of violence.
Sections are to work for making national laws against corporal punishment as a method used in child-raising and education.
