INTERNATIONAL DAY FOR THE ELIMINATION OF VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN

November 25th has been designated as the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women by the United Nations General Assembly.

One in three women worldwide have experienced physical or sexual violence — mostly by an intimate partner.
Globally, 35% of women and girls will experience some form of physical and/or sexual violence. This percentage is even higher in some countries.
November 25th kicks off 16 days of activism, raising awareness and encouraging education, intervention and prevention ending on December 10th, Human Rights Day.
