Call to stand up to violence against women and girls

25th November 2022


Stand up to violence against women and girls - that's the message from the Hertfordshire Domestic Abuse and Violence Against Women and Girls Partnership at the start of the international 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence campaign.

Today (Friday, 25 November) marks the start of the campaign which runs until 10 December calling for an end to gender-based violence. The international White Ribbon Day also occurs during this period in addition to the UN UNiTE campaign to ‘Orange the World’ - symbolising a brighter future free of violence.

The council Leader, Cllr Sarah Nelmes, and Chair, Cllr Debbie Morris, are both wearing orange to show support for the international campaign.
