International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, Nov. 25
The International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women will mark the launch of the UNiTE campaign (Nov 25- Dec 10)—an initiative of 16 days of activism concluding on the day that commemorates International Human Rights Day (December 10).
This 2023 campaign Invest to Prevent Violence against Women & Girls will call on citizens to show how much they care about ending violence against women and girls and call on governments worldwide to share how they are investing in gender-based violence prevention. Join the global movement with the #NoExcuse slogan calling for urgent investments to prevent violence against women and girls. Visit the official campaign website.
