“Nonviolence is a weapon of the strong.” – Mahatma Gandhi
Violence is never an option; nevertheless, around 20% of women experience physical and/or sexual violence in their life. 16,799 women and girls were victims of domestic violence in 2020. Every woman of every age, skin colour, religion and culture can be a victim of violence, which makes this a problem that concerns all of us. The International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women on the 25th of November reminds us that we are all in this together. Therefore, we have gathered information and help centres for you.
