International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women: For a Future Where all Women Live Free from Fear and Violence

This November 25, the International YCW is joining in the celebration of the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women.

This day, dedicated to raising awareness and eradicating gender-based violence, encourages us to reflect on the persistent reality faced by women, teenage girls and young girls around the world.

We recognize that violence against women knows no borders, affecting all ages, ethnic groups, social classes and economic status. It is an assault on fundamental human rights and a major obstacle to the achievement of equality between men and women.
