Taking a Stand Against Violence Against Women
On Friday, December 9th HCT members wore orange to work in order to take a stand against violence against women. Beginning the day after Thanksgiving, November 25th, International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, the United Nations encouraged all to celebrate 16 days of Activism Against Gender Violence. As the U.N. says: "Violence against women is a human rights violation. It is a consequence of discrimination against women and of persisting inequalities. It impacts and impedes progress in many areas, including poverty, health care, education and peace and security."
