Today women in Canada and the global South are calling for an end to the daily violence against women everywhere, in all its forms.
November 25, the International Day to End Violence Against Women, marks the beginning of 10 days to end violence against women, concluding on December 10, International Human Rights Day.
To highlight our work with Indigenous women and organizations on the Gendered Impacts of resource extraction, KAIROS is releasing a short video with scenes from our Women of Courage program, and messages from our partners.
Violence against women takes many forms. Often women are victimized several times over through gender inequity, poverty, racism, military conflict, and sexual violence.
