International Day against Violence to Women by 


When blood is of a battered woman the wound is of the whole society!!

This image is not mine but is very important for all.The original is in spanish.

This is the site for the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women (25 November)
http://www.un.org/en/events/endviolenceday/

“Women’s activists have marked November 25 as a day to fight violence against women since 1981. On December 17, 1999, the United Nations General Assembly designated 25 November as the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women (Resolution 54/134). The UN invited governments, international organizations and NGOs to organize activities designated to raise public awareness of the problem on this day as an international observance. Women around the world are subject to rape, domestic violence and other forms of violence, and the scale and true nature of the issue is often hidden.

This date came from the brutal assassination in 1960 of the three Mirabal sisters, political activists in the Dominican Republic, on orders of Dominican dictator Rafael Trujillo (1930–1961).

There is more information about the history of this day, and UN publications
relating to violence against women, at the UN’s Dag Hammarskjöld Library."

“Violence against women and girls takes many forms and is widespread throughout the globe. […] On this International Day, I urge governments and partners around the world to harness the energy, ideas and leadership of young people to help us to end this pandemic of violence. Only then will we have a more just, peaceful and equitable world.”

    Oh, my! I did not know about this day!
    What a striking and powerful image.
    It seems inconceivable that after centuries women are still where they are…. blamed, vulnerable, and battered.
    Thank you for posting this!

    Thanks to comment my friend!!

    “The 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence is an international campaign originating from the first Women’s Global Leadership Institute sponsored by the Center for Women’s Global Leadership in 1991. Participants chose the dates, November 25, International Day Against Violence Against Women and December 10, International Human Rights Day, in order to symbolically link violence against women and human rights and to emphasize that such violence is a violation of human rights.
