16 Days UN logo 2018End Violence Against Women

The International Day to Eliminate Violence Against Women is celebrated each year on 25th November. The theme of this day for 2017 is Leave No One Behind: End Violence Against Women and Children. In a recent report on progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals the UN Secretary General, António Guterres, stated:

“Gender inequality persists worldwide, depriving women and girls of their basic rights and opportunities. Achieving gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls will require more vigorous efforts, including legal frameworks, to counter deeply rooted gender-based discrimination that often results from patriarchal attitudes and related social norms.”

Let us be advocates for change and speak out to end violence against women and children. ACRATH suggestions can be found hereRead more…
