Join us in eliminating violence against women

WUSC will be participating in the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence – a global campaign aimed at the elimination of all forms of violence against women. The campaign launches today, on the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women.

Gender equality and women’s empowerment is essential for long-term development. When one in three women face violence in their lifetime, it devastates families, fractures communities and stalls development.

Join WUSC and our partners in Canada and overseas in preventing, reducing and ultimately eliminating violence against women in our lifetime.
