APIN site in support of “16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence”
- Violence against women is a human rights violation.
- Violence against women is a consequence of discrimination against women, in law and also in practice, and of persisting inequalities between men and women.
- Violence against women impacts on, and impedes, progress in many areas, including poverty eradication, combating HIV/AIDS, and peace and security.
- Violence against women and girls is not inevitable. Prevention is possible and essential.
This year, the UN Secretary-General’s UNiTE to End Violence against Women campaign invites you to “Orange the world,” Change everything around to Orange colour in support of the days.
