November 25 International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women. Already one of the most widespread human rights violations in the world, violence against women has sadly increased throughout the pandemic. In what
UN Women has described as a "shadow pandemic," 45 per cent of women reported that they or a woman they know experienced a form of violence against women since the pandemic's start, with seven-in-10 saying they think verbal or physical abuse by a partner has become more common since the outset of the COVID crisis. From intimate partner violence, including psychological abuses, to sexual harassment and violence, and human trafficking, violence against women and girls is too often unreported because of stigma, fear of retaliation, shame, and existing societal imbalances. On Nov. 25, the UN will launch the UNiTE campaign – 16 days of activism to end violence against women and girls of all identities including BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour) and 2SLGBTQIA+ people.
Here is a list of resources from the United Nations.
