International Day for the EVAW
International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women (EVAW) was launched in 2000 by the UN General Assembly. It is observed annually on November 25th. International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women seeks to raise awareness about violence against women. This day aims to eliminate violence by removing stigma and encouraging women to speak out against abusers. This day defines violence against women as any act of gender-based violence that results in or is likely to result in, physical, sexual, or psychological harm to women.
The goal of this day is to achieve equality, development, and peace. It aims toward the fulfilment of women’s and girls’ human rights.
