Leave no one behind: International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women

The International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women is observed around the world on 25 November.

It is an ideal opportunity to raise awareness and action on one of the most widespread and devastating violations of human rights today.

Violence against women comes in many forms and occurs in different areas, including workplaces. Women are almost three times as likely to be sexually harassed within male-dominated and traditional female jobs.   

Our infographic on sexual harassment at work and a web section on women and safety and health at work can help you raise awareness on this global problem.
