United Nations call for more investment in women’s organizations on International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women

Posted: Saturday, November 25, 2023. 2:12 pm CST.

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Today is being observed around the world as International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women.

The day is being commemorated under the theme, “UNiTE! Invest to Prevent Violence Against Women & Girls! #No Excuse.”

The United Nations note that violence against women and girls remains one of the most prevalent and pervasive human rights violations in the world.

Data from the UN indicate that an estimated 736 million women — almost one in three — have been subjected to physical and/or sexual intimate partner violence, non-partner sexual violence, or both, at least once in their life.

This scourge has intensified in different settings, including the workplace and online spaces, and has been exacerbated by post-pandemic effects, conflicts, and climate change.

The U.N. says that the solution lies in robust responses, including investment in prevention. However, alarmingly, data on how much nations are committing to counteract violence against women and girls remains glaringly sparse.

“We need more investment in women’s organizations, better legislation, prosecution of perpetrators, more services for survivors, and training for law enforcement officials,” the U.N. noted.

Join the global movement with the #NoExcuse slogan calling for urgent investments to prevent violence against women and girls.
