  • Sexual Harassment No Joke Campaign

The 16 days of activism against gender-based violence is an global campaign that starts on November 25, the worldwide Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, and ends on the worldwide Human Rights Day on December 10. As the world undergoes a seismic shift in response to widespread allegations of sexual harassment, teleSUR examines what the event means today.

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

Violence against women and girls is one of the most pressing social issues across the world. The data was compiled from 2005 to 2016 and included 87 countries.

According to womenhomicide.com data, 260 women were murdered by their male partners, husbands or family members past year across Turkey. This evidence, however, doesn't improve the actions for women's inclusion, leadership and protection.

Though the #metoo campaign has brought to light the stories of hundreds of women around the world who have been sexually assaulted, the figures published by the United Nations in honor of the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women reveal that not hundreds but millions of women have endured some form of sexual violence in their lifetime.

The research, released Friday, said violence against health-care workers is pervasive within the walls of hospitals across Ontario.

UN Women Executive Director Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka said that gender-based violence takes place hidden, but in plain sight, normalized so it is hardly noticeable. Frameworks that include a specific target for ending violence against women and girls, offer huge promise but must be adequately funded in order to bring real and significant changes in the lives of women and girls. Fourteen women died, while ten women and four men were injured. "And it exposed how a culture of entitlement, where there are no consequences for sexual crimes, has left many women tormented in silence".

Mr. Guterres is also addressing the issue of sexual exploitation and abuse in house by launching a new victim-centered approach to the offenses committed by those serving under the UN.

The UNiTE to End Violence against Women campaign invites you to "Orange the world", using the colour designated by the campaign to symbolize a brighter future without violence.
