International Day for the Elimination of Sexual Violence in Conflict

 

sexual_violence_2This 9 June will mark the first ever observance of the newly established International Day for the Elimination of Sexual Violence in Conflict.

The Day aims to raise awareness of the need to end conflict-related sexual violence, to stand in solidarity with the survivors of sexual violence around the world – be they women, girls, men or boys – and to pay tribute to all those working on the front-lines, often at great personal risk, to eradicate this scourge.
