Today, 25 November, is the #InternationalDayfortheEliminationofViolenceAgainstWomen launching the #16DaysofActivism against Gender-Based Violence. This year is the 30th anniversary of the 16 Days of Activism campaign, and we are calling for an end to violence against women.
Nearly 1 in 3 ...women have been abused in their lifetime. In times of crises, the numbers rise, as we’ve seen during COVID.
You can make a difference to the lives of women in our local community who are experiencing abuse. Talk to you friends and family, register for one of our 16 Days activities, or make a donation to our shelter.
Violence against women is any act of gender-based violence that results in physical or emotional harm to women. It can include social, financial and coercive control and is designed to create fear.
Your support for the Hornsby Kur-ing-gai Women's Shelter is already making a huge impact on the lives of women. Together, let's strive to support and care for women around the world, and end Gender-Based Violence.
