In yesterday’s post, we used a Wordle graphic to paint a literal word picture of the many types of violence against women. Today we are using the same tool to demonstrate the impact of violence against women:
The impact is severe and, like the violence itself, it takes many forms.
And it could affect any girl or woman in your life – the victim or survivor could be your mother, your sister, your daughter, your niece, your grandmother, your aunt, your cousin, your co-worker, your classmate, your friend or even just a woman on the street.
Don’t turn away.
Don’t be a walk-on-by bystander.
Don’t pretend it hasn’t happened, won’t happen, never will happen.
Take action today to stop the violence and heal lives. Even the smallest gesture such as picking up the phone to call for help for your neighbour or sending a friend helpline information helps.
It’s time to stop violence against women. Together.
