UN begins 16-day activism campaign highlighting female abuse
The International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women on November 25 is the occasion to highlight the many struggles women from around the world continue to face, including domestic abuse, genital mutilation, online violence, and femicide.
Yesterday, thousands of people took to the streets in Madrid and Barcelona in Spain to mark the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women. Protesters, many of who wore purple…marched down Madrid’s city centre last evening carrying banners and chanting “no is no, anything else is rape”…and… “we women are not goods”. Today, in this video, we take a quick look at what prompted people to march in streets raising slogans and highlighting gender-based violence in Spain.
