On November 25th 1999, the United Nations officially declared the first International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women. While this brought much needed international attention to the cause, it’s important to remember that many organizations, especially women’s organizations have already been working courageously to end this issue for decades.
Do you think societal attitudes towards violence against women have changed enough over the past couple of decades ? Are we making real progress towards eliminating violence against women? What attitudes still need to be changed/overcome?
