Whether at home, on the streets or during war, violence against women is a global pandemic that takes place in public and private spaces. Together we can and must end this pandemic.



www.unwomen.org...

Prevention is the 2015 theme of the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women on 25 November and of the UNiTE to End Violence against Women Campaign’s 16 days call for action.


Is anyone going to defend the migrant women who hide during the day to avoid being raped at the migrant camp in Calais?

Or is this campaign just useless fluff?

Over to you, ladies.

I support women and I fervently oppose picking on the weak or weaker no matter what, I'm sorry for victims of abuse no matter where they are today/tonight it's unacceptable wether refugee or citizen, that's all I have to say about that.

I started watching the tv show The Vikings last night, and I was barely into the second episode when the first rape of a female "slave" took place. If I was a time traveller there is no way on earth I would travel as a woman. Going to some places in the world, including just over the channel to France it would seem, is a little like the deepest, darkest times of the past. My British/European Passport, and my white skin, afford me many luxuries but more importantly they protect me in ways some women around the world can only imagine. In recognising the accident of our own birth, we should also recognise an obligation, particularly as parents, to not be complacent about understanding what that protection, by law, actually means to us, how different our lives would be without it and continually seek to ensure those same protections are extended to us all.

Generally, being psychically weaker is not sexist jab and says nothing about other strengths women and individuals have and often times more so then men.

Let's not be rediculously politically correct the victims of abuse are often women and children, (not that men do not get abused) therefor my statement stands.

Those hardcore advocates of violence against women have always done my head in. Its like there saying violence can be justified, just as long its not against a female.

Like... why wouldn't they just be against violence all together? Why are they always fixated on violence against women, specifically?

Elimination of Violence against Women

Should be more like "Elimination of Violence Day".
People really need to stop focusing on one race/religion/thing and must look at the bigger picture. Plus even then, in order to stop violence against women, you need to stop violence as a whole.

Says who?

Who decided this day is that? I did not. There is a stupid day for everything in the NWO. Not for me it isn't.

Every day is end violence all over the world for me, not just women.

They are hypocritical. They treat the world's people like dirt, depriving them often of even the necessities to live and eat and then have these idiotic days.

No, no, no. None of their hypocritical invented days mean a rat's ass to me.

Run, Forest, run!

What kind of inane and useless comment is this? Why parrot a silly Hollywood movie? It is not cute. It is the kind of English that someone short of their wits might use.

We don't because stupid people have a hold of the reigns and refuse to let go.... Making it about women is a divisive tactic that works.....

Lawful protection.

Law based on equality.

This is how it's said to be at the Calais camp.

Faustine Douillard, a social worker for the NGO France Terre d’Asile (France, Land of Asylum), visits the camp every day to advise those claiming asylum in France.

“I have to go through the men to speak to the women,” she says. “They don’t know their rights, and that makes them very vulnerable.”

Some are forced to take on male "protectors", who demand sexual favours in return.
www.france24.com...

Lack of equality in the camp makes equal lawful protection impossible.

As in the US military many rapes of migrant women are associated with urination. A truckload of shewees could prevent some rapes and the health problems associated with hanging on or insufficient fluid intake. It's easier to pee into a bottle in a tent with one of these, and squatting vulnerably outdoors can be avoided. If someone reading this wants to know what can be done to help, donating some of these may be a positive step. Supply lines for sleeping bags are difficult, for these it needs special female dedication to get them to the women who hide all day. www.gapyear.com...

I agree it's divisive nwo drivel. But we might as well use for something good if we can.

My motto is, 'If it belongs to the nwo and it isn't nailed down, steal it'.

What exactly has our toothless UN done to "eliminate" violence against women? How about organizing sanctions on a couple of middle eastern countries where women are treated like slaves? The UN is all talk but no walk. They need to exercise more pressure if they want to succeed in any of their lofty ideas.
