Violence against women and girls is a worldwide problem that affects people of all nationalities, faiths and economic backgrounds. Ending this violence isn’t just the responsibility of Governments but of every woman, man, boy and girl across the globe.
We can only end violence against women by changing society, relationships and the underlying factors that allow it to continue. We all have a role in raising awareness in our communities, changing attitudes and supporting grassroots action.
Take Action on International Women’s Day
Soroptimist International is calling for a global day of action on International Women’s Day – 8th March 2013. By organizing an event or demonstration on a bridge or other prominent place, SI Clubs can raise awareness of violence against women and say: ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.
