Today is Human Rights Day 2018 with the theme “Stand Up For Human Rights” This marks the last day of the UN 16 Days of Activism against Gender Based Violence campaign, #HearMeToo.
Rape and sexual violence against young girls and women is a violation of their fundamental human right to life, liberty, freedom from slavery and torture and from any opinion and expression that continues to perpetuate the wall of silence that persists.
The WARIF women at the Women At Risk International Foundation stand with all women who speak out or suffer silently against these atrocious acts. We remain committed and active in our role as advocates against gender based violence.
This is not the start of a movement; we are already in one!!
Thank you for joining us over the last 16 days participating in the #orangetheworldwithwarif online campaign.
