Violence against women is a global pandemic that must be stopped

Today is International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women. It marks the start of the United Nations’ annual 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence. It is, as the UN states, a time to galvanize action to end violence against women and girls.
