    Letter to the Media: International Day to End Violence Against Women

    Dear editors, reporters, anchors of news organizations, bloggers,

    I am writing to you with a personal invitation from UN Women. On 25 November, we will commemorate the International Day to End Violence against Women. It will kick off 16 days of global activism, until 10 December, to halt this gross violation of women’s human rights that affects at least 1 in 3 women and girls worldwide. It is a pandemic that we must stop. To do so, we need your help.

They are not viewed as empowered partners in social and economic development.
