As we embark on the UN 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence, we must unite in our efforts to address and prevent the pervasive issue of violence against women and girls. This year’s theme, “UNITE! Invest to prevent violence against women and girls,” underscores the importance of strategic and concerted investments in initiatives that can make a tangible impact.
Violence against women and girls is a global concern that knows no boundaries, affecting individuals across diverse cultures, communities, and socioeconomic backgrounds. The 16 Days of Activism serves as a rallying call to raise awareness, challenge stereotypes, and mobilize support for the prevention and elimination of gender-based violence.
