25th of November - International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women


International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women:

Why this International Day?

  • Violence against women is a human rights violation

  • Violence against women is a consequence of discrimination against women, in law and also in practice, and of persisting inequalities between men and women

  • Violence against women impacts on, and impedes, progress in many areas, including poverty eradication, combating HIV/AIDS, and peace and security

  • Violence against women and girls is not inevitable. Prevention is possible and essential

  • Violence against women continues to be a global pandemic.
