International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women

on November 25, 2014

Amnesty

Today is the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women. All of us know someone who has been the victim of violence, often at the hands of a partner or relative. We should never falter in our support for these women or in our opposition to violence against women in all its forms.

My friend managed to escape an abusive relationship recently and her story was featured on BBC’s Women’s Hour today. Please listen to her story here – it’s at the beginning of the programme. Here’s her request to you – if a women’s refuge in your area is threatened with closure, please add your voice to any campaign there is, for me. And to say that if you think anyone you know is experiencing domestic abuse please, please say something to them & offer any support you can. Even if you think they are not ready to hear it. Do not stay silent and stand by and watch.
