Winnipeg police launch video to help stop gender-based violence

The campaign runs every year from 25 November, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, to 10 December, Human Rights Day.

"Violence against women and girls is not inevitable", said Rebecca Tavares, Country Representative ad interim for the UN Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (UN Women).

TORONTO-Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says men must do more to put an end to gender-based violence against women and girls.

At least 45 women have been killed in Spain so far this year by their partner or ex-partner, according to the government's gender violence department.

"For Afghan women to achieve their full potential and their enormous capacity in development, in peace and in security, the violations of the rights of women and girls, particularly through violence, must cease", he said.

Thousands took to the streets of Madrid on Saturday to protest violence against women, just as Spain reels from a grisly trial over an alleged gang rape.

Violence against women is one of the most extreme forms of discrimination.

'Two leaves' symbol allotted to EPS-OPS faction
In contrast, only 20 MLAs (18 disqualified), and three MPs each of the two Houses had backed the group led by V.K. Chennai: Reclaiming the Two Leaves symbol, is for sure, a shot in the arm for Chief Minister Edappadi K.

Nearly half of the women who were killed in 2012 were killed by either partners or family members, compared to 6% of men.

"There is an increasing recognition that violence against women is a major barrier to the fulfillment of human rights, and a direct challenge to women's inclusion and participation in sustainable development and sustaining peace", said Guterres.

This year, the European Union and the United Nations launched the Spotlight Initiative to eliminate violence against women and girls.

Among other efforts, the United Nations launched a zero-tolerance policy towards sexual harassment and has said that it is committed to continuing the "UNiTE to End Violence against Women" Campaign, under the new title "UNiTE by 2030". "When we talk about leaving no one behind, we want to identify all these different forms of violence that women experience".

In the United States, more than one in four women in Washington DC reported experiencing sexual harassment on public transportation, 65 percent of women in the U.S. testified that they experienced harassment of some kind on the street, and 23 percent testified that they had experienced sexual harassment in the street.

Orange is the official colour of the campaign, which is why various capitals around the world express their solidarity by lighting their main buildings in orange.
