UNFPA Executive Director Dr. Natalia Kanem's Message on the 16 Days of Activism against GBV

Published on: 24/11/2020

Enough! That’s what we say, today and every day, to all forms of violence against women and girls.

Enough to domestic violence. Enough to rape. Enough to harmful practices like female genital mutilation. And enough to impunity for one of the most flagrant and pervasive violations of human rights. 

Women and girls have every right to live free from violence, everywhere. They have a right to peace in the home, in public and online.

It is time to stand up and say enough to violence not just on one day, but 365 days a year. We must prevent violence. And until we end it, we must provide everything women and girls need to survive and recover, from physical and mental health care to legal aid and support for regaining livelihoods.
