Nov. 25 is International Day for the Removal of Violence Against Women, a commemorative day founded by the United Nations to acknowledge what it calls “among the most widespread, relentless and destructive human rights violations in our world today.”
This year’s style is “Orange the World: Generation Equality Stands Against Rape.” For the next two years, a campaign from the U.N. Secretary General will focus specifically on rape in its efforts to prevent and remove violence against females and girls.
According to U.N. figures, one in three ladies and girls experience some kind of physical or sexual violence in their lives. The U.N. quotes that around 15 million teen girls have experienced forced sex throughout their lifetimes. Based upon its data from 30 nations, only 1 percent of these girls ever looked for professional help.
” A lot of people stop working to call or challenge the rape culture that surrounds us,” U.N. Women said in an statement about this year’s style.
U.N. Ladies encourages people to get directly involved in preventing sexual violence by learning more about rape culture, listening to survivors, and discussing consent.
For this year’s International Day for the Removal of Violence Versus Women, here are some tweets that show you how to do precisely that.
World News 1. Know the meaning of approval
World News 2. Comprehend the concern females bring to prevent violence
World News 3. Speak out
World News 4. Condemn violence
Violence versus women and women is violence against the whole mankind, and must have no location in Europe or somewhere else worldwide.
