Official UN Commemoration of the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women
The Official UN Commemoration of the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women will take place on Wednesday, 23 November 2022 from 10 am – 11.30 am (EST) at the ECOSOC Chamber, at the United Nations Headquarters in New York.
The event will bring together feminists from all over the world who will be reminding us how gender-based violence against women and girls in all our diversity is not only preventable, it must urgently be prevented.
Under the global umbrella theme of the 2022 UNiTE Campaign: “UNiTE! Activism to End Violence against Women & Girls”, the event will shine a spotlight on the powerful role of women’s rights movements in preventing and eliminating violence against women and girls; mobilize more people to support efforts in ending violence against women and girls and to push back against the rollback on women’s rights; and kickstart the activities of the 16 Days of Activism.
