UNite to End Violence Against Women

February 24, 2013 | By More

Launched in 2008, the United Nations Secretary-General’s UNiTE to End Violence against
Women campaign aims to raise public awareness and increase political will and resources for
preventing and ending all forms of violence against women and girls in all parts of the world.

The global vision of the UNiTE campaign is a world free from violence against all women and
girls. This vision can only be realized through the meaningful actions and ongoing political
commitments of national governments, backed by adequate resources.

The United Nations Secretary-General’s UNiTE campaign calls on all governments, civil society,
women’s organizations, men, young people, the private sector, the media and the entire UN
system to join forces in addressing this global pandemic. Through its advocacy initiatives at the
global, regional and national levels, the UNiTE campaign is working to mobilize individuals and
communities. In addition to supporting the longstanding efforts of women’s and civil society
organizations, the campaign is actively engaging with men, young people, celebrities, artists,
sports personalities, the private sector and many more.
