International Day For The Elimination Of Violence Against Women

Awareness of an ongoing human rights issue is raised on November 25th International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women. Today, many women around the world are still vulnerable to rape and other forms of violence.

Government officials and international leaders have led the movement to reduce violence against women and girls. Sadly, it is also all too normal. Violence against women continues to be a widespread and persistent human rights offender.

  • One in every three women worldwide suffers from physical or sexual assault, most by an intimate partner
  • Globally, 35% of women and girls will experience some form of physical and/or sexual assault. The statistics in several countries are closer to 70%
  • Women account for nearly half of all human trafficking victims around the world
  • 650 million women and girls in the world are expected to marry before the age of 18
  • In 30 countries, female genital mutilation has affected 200 million women and girls
  • About 15 million girls between the ages of 15 to 19 have experienced forced sex at one point in their lives

Many women and girls who experience violent crimes against them do not seek assistance. Despite the fact that 144 countries have laws governing domestic violence, they are not always followed. This day is also about raising awareness, eliminating the stigma, stigma, and shame surrounding these acts of violence against women.

Since 1981, women right's campaigners have celebrated a day against gender-based violence. They chose November 25th in honor of three Mirabal sisters. The sisters, political activists in the Dominican Republic who resisted Rafael Trujillo's draconian rule. They were brutally murdered on November 25th, 1960, when they were brutally murdered. The United Nations General Assembly's Declaration on the Elimination of Violence against Women was adopted on December 20, 1993. Their aim was to eliminate violence against women and girls on a global basis. The United Nations officially designated November 25th as the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women on February 7, 2000. This day marks 16 days of activism, which comes to an end on December 10th, Human Rights Day.
