November 25th is the United Nations International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women

November 25th is the United Nations International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women.  Please do your part to help the United Nations reach its goal. The General Assembly has designated 25 November as the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, and has invited Governments, international organizations and non-governmental organizations to organize on that day activities to raise public awareness on the problem (resolution 54/134 of 17 December 1999).

I am pleased to recognize that the Province of Ontario intends to put forward legislation to treat violations of restraining orders as a criminal offense.

What else can be done?  What can ordinary people do?  Please donate to a women's shelter in your community. 

Please go to the following link as sign the petition.  On November 25th, UNIFEM 9United nations Development Fund for Women) wants to deliver one million names to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon - http://www.unifem.ca/say_no_to_vaw.php

Please join me in signing.
