International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women

Every year, we remember the history of the Mirabal Sisters, brutally assassinated on 25 November 1960 for having fought in support of their rights as women and activists. Sixty years after, millions of girls and women all around the world continue to be subjected to violence. This violence represents one of the most widespread, persistent and devastating human rights violations of our time, and it can take many forms, including physical, sexual, or psychological violence, as well as economic abuse and exploitation.
