International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women – 25 November

Author: admin2

Why This International Day?

  • Globally, 35 percent of women experience sexual or physical violence (World Health Organization and UN Women)
  • Each year, 3 million girls face the risk of female genital mutilation or cutting ( UNFPA)
  • Sixty percent of women whose first sexual experience was forced, go on to experience further sexual violence later in life (UNFPA)
4 things you can do:
  1. Stay Informed – stay up-to-date on all the issues impacting women worldwide
  2. Pray – pray in parishes and community for the conversion of hearts for abusers, those indifferent, and those who are addicted to pornography
  3. Take Action – speak to your lawmakers so they hear that people like you care about women and girls living in violence
  4. Go Social – spread the word about the situation through social media, your families and friends, your schools
