International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women

 
 

"Not until the half of our population represented by women and girls can live free from fear, violence and everyday insecurity, can we truly say we live in a fair and equal world." - UN Secretary-General António Guterres

 

 

Sunday, November 25, 2018 has been dedicated as
International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women

  • 1 in 3 women and girls experience physical or sexual violence in their lifetime, most frequently by an intimate partner

  • 71% of all human trafficking victims worldwide are women and girls, and 3 out of 4 of these women and girls are sexually exploited

  • Violence against women is as serious a cause of death and incapacity among women of reproductive age as
    cancer, and a greater cause of ill health than traffic accidents and malaria combined.

 

 

The UN Women for Peace Association is dedicated to activities that promote tolerance and respect toward the creation of a peaceful world. We envision a world in which women everywhere have the same opportunities:

  • Access to education;

  • Opportunities to impact the societies around them in a meaningful and positive capacity;

  • Freedom to live in peace, in an environment characterized by tolerance, respect, empowerment, and hope; and

  • Protection from violence and freedom from the threat of violence.

Women's Rights are Human Rights. Silence and Inaction are Unnaceptable
