Up to 7 in 10 women will be beaten, raped, abused or mutilated in their lifetime. Violence against women and girls is the most pervasive human rights violation, but it’s not inevitable. It can be prevented through education and awareness, reduced through better laws and services, and ultimately eliminated.
It is time to act. People are rising, mobilizing everywhere, and governments are committing to improve laws and policies. From 4 – 15 March, the United Nations is convening governments and activists from around the world to discuss strategies to end violence against women and girls at the 57th Commission on the Status of Women.
Harness the momentum with us. Tell everyone you know that they can be part of a global movement to end violence against women.
