Leave No One Behind: End Violence Against Women and Girls

November 25th is the International Day for the Elimination of Violence againt Women.  Every year, the United Nations launches an awareness campaing against gender-based violence. This year's campaign runs 16 days and concludes on December 10, Human Rights Day.

In response to the United Nations' call for action to raise awareness and facilitate collective action to end violence against all women and girls, the Winnipeg Police Service produced a supporting video.

Violence against women and girls is one of the most widespread, persistent and devastating human rights violations in the world today. Together we can work to break the cycle of violence for good.

This year, as part of the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence, the Manitoba government is highlighting the importance of speaking out and seeking help. It is imperative we all look for signs of abuse and violence. We need to support both those who continue to suffer and those brave enough to break away. We must create an environment where survivors feel supported." – Rochelle Squires, minister responsible for status of women
