Violence against women is a Global Scandal..... a Human Rights Violation.... Happening Everywhere.... Everyday !!!
But, it does has solution and it starts with keeping the promises to create a world where women are assured and respected.
- Let's pledge to spread out the message in our personal and professional lives, that violence against women is NOT acceptable, NEVER excusable and NEVER tolerable.
- Let's commit ourselves to progressive efforts and activism that place violence against women and girls as a public issue, not a private matter, which exists as a consequence of gender discrimination at all levels of society.
- Let's sensitise and ensure that the message of ‘zero tolerance’ is heard far and wide.
UNICEF: Preventing sexual violence to women and girls
“United Nations Secretary-General’s UNiTE to End Violence against Women” campaign: Launched in 2008, this campaign aims to raise public awareness and increase political will and resources for preventing and ending all forms of violence against women and girls in all parts of the world. The global vision of the UNiTE campaign is a world free from violence against all women and girls. This vision can only be realized through the meaningful actions and ongoing political commitments of national governments, backed by adequate resources. The United Nations Secretary-General’s UNiTE campaign calls on all governments, civil society, women’s organizations, men, young people, the private sector, the media and the entire UN system to join forces in addressing this global pandemic.
