On the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, we remember the victims of violence against women. Today, the situation of personal insecurity and rights violation of many women around the world (here and there) is still evident.
From CONEMUND, we would like to send a message of support and solidarity to all those women and men who work promoting human rights and equality. They have achieved many successes, but still today face many other challenges and obstacles.
In particular, we send our message to the organizations we are working with in Egypt, Morocco and Palestine to prevent and eliminate all forms of Gender Based Violence. With them, we work in different aspects: prevention of female genital mutilation, awareness on human rights, and support to shelters for victims of domestic violence, or promotion of women’s organizations participation in peace building processes.
