Each year, on the UN International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, we are reminded how every day women and girls experience violence.
- Globally, 1 in 3 women will experience physical or sexual violence at some point in her life.
- 603 million women live in countries where domestic violence is not yet considered a crime.
- In some countries the annual cost of intimate partner violence was calculated at $1.6 to $5.8 US billion.
We salute the change-makers who are taking a stand: Angelina Jolie’s campaign to stop war rape; Emma Watson’s support for the “HeForShe” movement, mobilising one billion men and boys to end gender inequality; and if you haven’t seen it already, watch the unforgettable Run Like a Girl (53m views and counting).
Leadership is vital if we are all to change our behaviour. We are proud to represent four inspirational campaigners, visionary female speakers on equality, diversity and opportunity. Please click on the images to learn more about their work and the messages they share with corporate, college and public audiences in the US and around the world.
