The Karen Human Rights Group (KHRG) and the Karen Women’s Organisation (KWO) would like to unite their voices in support of the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women. The observation of November 25 as a day to call attention to acts of sexual, physical, or psychological harm committed against women and girls has been occurring since 1980. However, over these last 40 years, far too little has been done. Violence continues to be one of the defining characteristics of life for women all around the world. On this day, and every day, we reinforce our calls for perpetrators of violence against women to be held accountable.
