No More Violence Against Women
Last year, an estimated 1.3 million women across the UK experienced violence, including domestic violence, rape, forced marriage, sexual exploitation and other forms of abuse and harassment.
We are encouraging members to take action to end the scourge of violence against women by pledging to take part in 16 days of action.
Spearheaded by the UN, 16 days of activism against gender-based violence runs from 25th November 2019 (International Day to End Violence against Women) to 10th December 2019 (Human Rights Day).
International Women’s Day: 8th March 2020
International Women’s Day provides a great opportunity to shine a spotlight on our campaign to end violence against women. It is also a chance to celebrate women’s enormous contribution to human kind and the achievements – social, economic, cultural and political – that women have accomplished.
For IWD 2020, the theme is ‘Think equal, build smart and innovate for change’. As the largest women’s membership organisation in the UK this is a key time to raise awareness of the WI campaign.
