November 25th marks the “International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women”. The theme chosen this year by women in our community is: “No one is above the law”. This is a message of warning to the perpetrators of violence and it is a message of comfort to the victims of violence. Violence against women is a crime in the communities, and countries we live in. There are local, national, and international laws which clearly forbid violence against women and girls, and clearly state what penalties there are for those who break the law. Everyone is governed by these laws, no matter who they are.
