Violence against women is a daily occurrence that affects women all over the world, coming from all social and economic backgrounds. It is a social problem, not a women’s problem and we have to combat it together as a society.
To celebrate this important day, Rights! has chosen to offer you a selection of articles written throughout the years by different authors coming from different parts of the world. From France to the US, from South Asia to Turkey, they discuss women’s rights from different perspectives and suggest context-based solutions against violence and discrimination.
