Challenge Grant to End Violence against Women

From a UNIFEM Press Release. . .

Washington, DC/New York — The United Nations Foundation announced today its support for the “Say NO to Violence against Women” campaign. The Foundation will donate $1 for each of the first 100,000 signatures to the online campaign that is run by the UN Development Fund for Women, UNIFEM. The contributions will go to the UNIFEM-managed UN Trust Fund to End Violence against Women.

“Recent UN research has demonstrated the shameful scope of violence against women around the world, where one in three women are subject to some form of coercion or abuse in their lifetimes,” said Timothy E. Wirth, President of the United Nations Foundation. “To turn the tide on violence, the international community must work together to stand up for the human rights of women and that’s what UNIFEM’s ‘Say NO’ campaign does. It allows people everywhere to go on record and stand up for a world free of violence against women.”

“Thanks to this fantastic challenge grant, every signature will bolster our cause to make ending violence against women worldwide a top priority,” said UNIFEM Goodwill Ambassador Nicole Kidman who champions the campaign. “What’s more, it will help provide critical resources for local initiatives that are supported through the UN Trust Fund to End Violence against Women — whether it is working to prevent human trafficking, assisting survivors of domestic violence or helping implement laws against rape.”
