The International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, a day adopted by the United Nations, has been commemorating the International Day for Human Rights and International Law since 1981 on 25 November each year as part of efforts to reduce violence against women and to urge States to take the necessary measures To ensure that women enjoy the necessary protection. The United Nations chose on 25 November as a permanent day to combat violence against women in honor of the Mirabal sisters, three political activists from the Dominican Republic who were brutally murdered in 1960, on the orders of the Dominican ruler Raphael Trujillo (1930-1961).

The organization salutes this occasion with the peoples of the world and all the forces fighting violence and discrimination and defending the values of tolerance, citizenship, equality and human dignity. We extend our congratulations to all the women of the world and salute the struggles of the local and international women's movement and express our full solidarity with women in order to enable their rights and work. In order to eliminate all forms of discrimination and violence against them.

With this year's anniversary (2018), violence against women is still practiced from the very first moment of birth, coupled with the norms, traditions and culture that allow a discriminatory and inferior view of women, through the stereotypical view of educational curricula, even the laws governing most countries of the third world. To economic pressures, poverty and unemployment, and the severity of these factors is increasing with the disastrous wars and internal conflicts experienced by some countries, which affected the whole human rights system, and was certainly the woman and still the first victims of this painful climate, has been committed to all violations of Murder, abduction, enforced disappearance, torture, rape and forced displacement.

In some conflict countries (Yemen, Somalia, Syria, Iraq, Palestine, Libya, Myanmar, the Philippines, Afghanistan, Kashmir, Uganda, Sudan, South Sudan, Guatemala, Venezuela, Senegal, Niger, Rwanda and Burundi). Putting women in the midst of bloody wars and battles and subjected to the killing, the woman, the victim's mother, sister and widow of the victim, and the child's nanny, became victims of all forms of murder, displacement, poverty, destitution, abuse, physical and moral violence, violation of her dignity and femininity. As well as in the areas controlled by the so-called "jihadist movements," the situation of women is getting worse and worse, under the fatwas of clerics and their legislations that affect women, dress, behavior and life, has been subjected to new forms of violence in addition to the constraints practiced by extremist armed groups and the so-called "judiciary and its legal courts", which sought to impose some backward and barbaric cultural patterns against women, and placed women below the human level, Towards a culture that places women in an inferior position that may reach the point where they become a commodity that is sold and purified and their fate determined without regard to their human being.

It is important to note that violence against women and girls is one of the most widespread, persistent and destructive human rights violations in our world today. Violence is manifested in physical, sexual and psychological forms. The Declaration on the Elimination of Violence against Women, adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in 1993, Violence against women is as follows:

"Any act of gender-based violence that results or is likely to result in physical or sexual harm or suffering to women, including the threat of such acts, coercion or arbitrary deprivation of liberty, whether in life Public or private."

The negative consequences of violence against women and girls affect the psychological, sexual and reproductive health of women throughout their lives. For example, the disadvantages of the lack of early education are not only the main obstacle to the right of girls to education, but also restrict access to higher education and lead to limited employment opportunities for women in the labor market.

While gender-based violence can happen to anyone, anywhere, some women and girls from particular groups are particularly at risk - for example, girls and older women, migrant and refugee women, indigenous women and ethnic minorities. Or women and girls living with HIV and disabilities, and affected by humanitarian crises. Violence against women continues to be a barrier to equality, development and peace, as well as the fulfillment of human rights.

This year's 2018 event, entitled "Let's Make the World Orange: Unite to End Violence against Women and Girls", encourages participants around the world to wear an orange touch, with orange symbolizing a brighter future and a world free of violence against women and girls in solidarity with the issue of reducing violence against women.

The United Nations chose 25 of each month as its Orange Day - for its "Unite - Say No" campaign launched in 2009 to mobilize civil society, activists, governments and the United Nations system to strengthen the impact of the UN Secretary-General's campaign to end violence against woman.

November 25 marks the launch of 16 days of struggle, which will end on 10 December 2018, World Human Rights Day, where the campaign Listen _ and me _ also # a platform for voices of women and girls who survive violence and for the voices of women's rights defenders every day who work away from the spotlight or the media. The aim is to honor and amplify these voices, whether the voice of a wife in her home, a student abused by her teacher, an office secretary, or a sports woman, and then collect these voices across sites and sectors within a global solidarity movement, it is an invitation to listen and authenticate survivors, and ending the culture of silence and placing survivors in the center of the response. According to the statement of “Fumzilla Mambo- Nojoma “the Secretary-General's Under-Secretary-General and the Executive Director of the United Nations Commission on Women (UNIFEM), in her message on the occasion. The initiative aims to provide renewed investments and commitments to achieve gender equality and the empowerment of women as a precondition and a driving force behind the achievement of all sustainable development goals. It also aims to be at the forefront of a new and joint approach to forging a partnership between the United Nations and the European Union in pursuit of the goals of sustainable development in an integrated and in line with their respective mandates.

The initiative will address all forms of violence against women and girls with a particular focus on domestic violence and violence within the family, sexual violence and harmful practices such as female killing, trafficking in human beings and sexual and economic exploitation in employment, and in line with the 2030 Sustainable Development Plan, the initiative will fully integrate the concept of “no one lagging behind”.

According to UN Women's Reports, violence against women and girls is one of the most widespread, persistent and destructive human rights violations in our world today. This violence affects progress in many areas, including the eradication of poverty, the fight against HIV / AIDS, peace and security and hinders progress in those areas.

Adult women account for 51% of all victims of human trafficking that are detected globally. Women and girls together account for 71%, and girls account for approximately 3 in 4 victims of child trafficking. Three out of every four trafficked women and girls are trafficked for the purpose of sexual exploitation. It is estimated that there are 750 million women and girls in the world today who married before the age of eighteen, often leading to early pregnancy and social isolation, dropping out of education, reducing girls' opportunities and increasing the risk of domestic violence. One in three women is subjected to physical or sexual violence during their lives, and one out of two women killed worldwide by their family or family in 2012 was killed; only one in 20 was killed in similar circumstances. Seventy-one percent of all trafficking victims in the world are women, and 3 out of 4 women are sexually exploited.

We in the international Organization for Human Rights and International Law extend our congratulations to all the women of the world, we salute the struggles of the local and global women’s movement, we express our full and sincere solidarity with all women and express our full solidarity with the victims of women, whether they have been arbitrarily detained, abducted, enforced disappearances, refugee women, raped, or otherwise subjected to violence, injury and injury, wounded women and families of murdered victims that were assassinated and killed.
