Elimination of Violence Against Women and Girls

Raising awareness to eliminate violence against women.

#No Excuse.

Raising our young people’s understanding of domestic violence.

Violence against women and girls remains one of the most prevalent and pervasive human rights violations in the world. Globally, an estimated 736 million women — almost one in three — have been subjected to physical and/or sexual intimate partner violence, non-partner sexual violence, or both, at least once in their life.

This issue has intensified in different settings, including the workplace, in schools and in online spaces, and has been exacerbated by post-pandemic effects, conflicts, and climate change.

International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women

As part of our tutorial and enrichment programme, students are celebrating the United Nation’s International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women on the 25 November by taking part in a series of events across our campuses. The event aims to help students understand what violence against women and girls is, as well as the importance of speaking out on such a prevalent issue within society.

Students will have to opportunity to engage with representatives from charities and organisations to find out more about violence against women and girls and where they can get support. There will also be a series of talks from survivors of VAWG (Violence Against Women and Girls) and a discussion on the efforts being made to eliminate violence against women.
