Violence against women and girls is one of the most widespread violations of human rights in the world. This violence takes many forms including: physical, sexual and psychological abuse, as well as harmful cultural practices such as forced child marriage. According to the World Health Organization, more than 50 percent of women and girls in some countries experience domestic violence. Almost every day, we hear and read about domestic violence, sexual abuse and "honor" killings. These cases are the ones that make the news; so many more go uncovered, even unreported.

This type of violence has extensive health and social consequences for individuals, families and communities. Violence against women and girls reduces their contributions to development, inflicts costs on national economies and undermines poverty reduction efforts. In short, acts of violence against women and girls prevent individuals, families and whole communities from escaping poverty.

Sign the petition to call for an end to these atrocities right now. Together, we can make ending violence against women a priority.
