NCRI - The Secretary-General of the United Nations urged for global action to combat violence against women and girls in advance of the International Day for Elimination of Violence Against Women.
António Guterres said: “Violence against women is fundamentally about power. It will only end when gender equality and the full empowerment of women will be a reality.”
He continued: “There is an increasing recognition that violence against women is a major barrier to the fulfilment of human rights, and a direct challenge to women’s inclusion and participation in sustainable development and sustaining peace.”
NCRI - On November 25, it is the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, but violence against women and other forms of misogyny is still systemic in many places.
There is no country in the world where we have achieved total gender equality. In many countries, women are treated as second-class citizens, unable to work, vote, marry, dress, or live freely.
