Michelle Bachelet: International Day to End Violence Against Women
To mark the International Day to End Violence against Women on 25 November 2012, UN Women Executive Director Michelle Bachelet calls on all heads of state and government to make new commitments and take strong national action to protect women and girls.
The world community has already come a long along way with national laws, international treaties, and widespread and growing awareness on ending violence against women. But it is not enough. Government promises must be translated into concrete actions, such as providing new safe houses, free hotline services, and free legal and medical aid to survivors.
The time for complacency has run out. Together, it is possible to stop the violence against women against women and girls.
