The Prevalence of Violence Against Women

If so much as one woman in the world experiences violence based on her gender, that's one too many. Unfortunately, many more than one woman - one in three in the world - have been victims of violence. This fact is absolutely unacceptable. As a society, we must decry violence against women and stand up against it. Those of us who understand how terrible and unacceptable violence is must teach men not to victimize women and to encourage other men to do the same. We must teach women that they deserve more, that they have an inherent right to a life without violence. Because that's the truth.
