We Can Only End Violence Against Women Together

| Posted 11.22.2012 | UK Lifestyle

Last year I launched the 16-step policy agenda. Today, I urge all Heads of State and Government to end the scourge of violence that affects every society by participating in an exciting global initiative to showcase national commitments to end violence against women and girls. The first step has been taken: the silence has been broken. Today at least 125 countries outlaw domestic violence and there is a large body of legislation on violence against women and girls.

Sólo podemos acabar con la violencia contra las mujeres si trabajamos unidos
