Elimination of Violence Against Women Day

Each year November 25th is the start of 16 Days of Activism against gender based violence.  Swindon Soroptimists met on that date dressed in orange in response to a call for a global effort on UN International Day of Elimination of Violence Against Women.

Since Covid a Shadow Pandemic of domestic violence is growing and there is an urgent need to stem the tide.

2021 marks the 30th anniversary of the Global Campaign.  In 2021 the Campaign will focus on the issue of “femicide or the gender-related killing of women.”

Soroptimists around the world stand up for women and girls.
