IF Statement on Human Rights Day

 

Video Spot 3 – Women’s Protection

Today the world celebrates International Human Rights Day and the culmination of UN Women’s 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence. This movement works to end violence against girls and women across the globe, giving attention to a serious issue that affects 1 in 3 women. The overarching theme of this year is “Leave No One Behind: End Violence Against Women and Girls,” emphasizing the importance of eliminating violence among underserved and marginalized populations, including those affected by conflict and displacement. This issue is especially prevalent in Iraq, where women who already face oppression and a lack of rights, have encountered even greater challenges as they fled from war. Violence against women and girls is undeniably a human rights issue, and working together to combat this crisis creates a brighter future for all. #OrangeTheWorld
