25 November is International Day to End Violence against Women

Sixteen Days of Activism against Gender Violence starts on November 25, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women.

Each day represents a key fact regarding violence against women which will be highlighted during the international campaign ending on December 10, International Human Rights Day.

As part of ongoing efforts to end the scourge, United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon launched his UNiTE to End Violence against Women campaign in 2008.
