INTERNATIONAL DAY FOR THE ELIMINATION OF VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN

Dear Parents

Greetings

FEMINISM ISN’T ABOUT MAKING WOMEN STRONG. WOMEN ARE ALREADY STRONG. IT’S ABOUT CHANGING THE WAY THE WORLD PERCEIVES THEIR STRENGTH.

Violence against women and girls is one of the most widespread, persistent and devastating human rights violations in our world. It remains largely unreported due to the silence, mental and physicalharassment, and shame surrounding it.

The International Day for the elimination of violence against women, aims to prevent and eliminate violence against women and girls. The declaration on the Elimination of Violence Against Women was raised by the UN General Assembly in 1993. This day defines violence against women as any act of gender-based violence that results in physical, sexual or psychological harm or suffering to women, including threats of such acts, whether occurring in public or in private life.

This year’s theme for International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women is Orange the World: Fund, Respond, Prevent, Collect. This theme is chosen as the UN system with UN women is coming up with survivors, activists and people across the world, to work on the need for funding and essential services.

RKS also stands for the welfare of women of our country and is against any kind of violence towards them. To induce the same thoughts in the students the school has organised certain activities. Students of different class-clusters should go through the following activities and participate whole-heartedly.
