Today marks the UN International Day of Elimination of Violence against Women, an opportunity for civil society organisations and political activists to galvanise action to end violence against women and girls around the world.

The campaign “16 days call for action to End Violence against Women” also starts on this date and continues to Human Rights Day on 10 December.
