Violence against women is perhaps the most pervasive human rights violation — affecting no less than one in three women. But it remains largely invisible. Fear and shame prevent many women from speaking out. But you can help them to be heard and to be seen through your actions, advocacy and support.
UNIFEM (United Nations Development Fund for Women) is currently running a Say NO To Violence Against Women Campaign to attain 1 million signatures for this movement by November 24, to take a stand and build a community around this important cause. On November 25, UNIFEM and Goodwill Ambassador Nicole Kidman will present these signatures to the UN Secretary General.
Please join the Say NO To Violence Against Women Campaign by helping to spread awareness for this movement to your readers, family and friends. Add your support to an ever-growing movement of people who are calling for a global action to end violence against women. You can help by adding your signature to the petition via the widget below. Alternatively, you might want to promote this cause by embedding the widget on your site OR get a support badge here! Remember, EVERY VOICE COUNTS.
THANK YOU TO ALL WHO ARE WILLING TO SUPPORT THIS CAUSE!
