International Day to Eliminate Violence Against Women
International Day for the Elimination of
Violence Against Women
International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women is observed globally on the
25th of November each year. The day highlights that women and girls have a right to live free from violence and that violence against women is internationally recognised as a violation of these human rights.
The Salvation Army wholeheartedly supports efforts to eliminate violence within families. Our commitment to gender equality means that we care about instances of violence which affect any person- as human life is sacred and all people should be treated with dignity and respect.
The Bible teaches that all people are equal in value to God, and that God cares about the details of every person’s life. Every instance of violence in a relationship is contrary to this teaching and is unacceptable.
The resources available on this page have been created by the Policy and Advocacy Team to assist you in recognising this day.
- Corps resource pack – includes leaders notes and prayers to help leaders facilitate the meeting.
- PowerPoint slides – including supporting text to help people reflect on when using the presentation.
- Supplementary information – additional details on what violence looks like and resources to know how you or someone else can help.
