The Stand Against Gender Violence

Stand Up for the Freedom of Others and End the Abuse

Never leave a Victim Behind

Gender violence happens everywhere. It is an issue faced by many around the world. Not only is this abuse wrong and against the law, but it is also a stab at ones freedom and safety.

Today, many women are taking a stand against this act of violence, but why does it have to be women who stand up against this violence? Why can't men stand up with women instead of simply watching from the sidelines? Yes, women do have the power to stand up for themselves, but gender violence is a major global issue. No matter who or what the person is... abuse is abuse and it is wrong.

Don't just stand there! Help fight for justice... for your family, friends, partner/spouse because gender violence can happen to anyone. Fight for freedom. Fight for humanity.
