The Official UN Commemoration of the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women will take place on Wednesday, 23 November 2022 from 10 am – 11.30 am (EST) at the ECOSOC Chamber, at the United Nations Headquarters in New York.
The event will bring together feminists from all over the world who will be reminding us how gender-based violence against women and girls in all our diversity is not only preventable, it must urgently be prevented.
Under the global umbrella theme of the 2022 UNiTE Campaign: “UNiTE! Activism to End Violence against Women & Girls”, the event will shine a spotlight on the powerful role of women’s rights movements in preventing and eliminating violence against women and girls; mobilize more people to support efforts in ending violence against women and girls and to push back against the rollback on women’s rights; and kickstart the activities of the 16 Days of Activism.
