Say No to Violence Against Women

Say No to Violence Against Women

November 2008 – UNIFEM’s Say No to Violence Campaign, which GWI has participated in as a partner, continues to gain support. Close to 250,000 individuals and 35 Governments have signed the online petition. UNIFEM hopes to reach 1 million names by 25 November, when all the names will be handed to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon in a broad-based call for governments to take action to end violence against women and girls. All GWI members are encouraged to add their names to the petition and to invite three friends to do the same.
