International Day for Elimination of Violence against Women

November 25, 2015, – Young Professionals and Skilled Workers Association (YPSWA) joins Canadians and people around the world in recognizing the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women.

Violence against women is a violation of the most basic human rights. It destroys lives, tears families apart, impacts entire communities, and has no place within our society.

“This Day serves as an important reminder that women and girls – particularly indigenous women and girls – continue to be vulnerable to violence in our society. This must change.

YPSWA applauds the Government of Canada in its pledge to continue to raise awareness of violence against women, help prevent it, and support the victims who have experienced it, both here at home and around the world.

As Canadians, we need to make sure we are combating misogyny in all its forms, wherever it is found.

We encourage all Canadians to make a commitment to stopping violence against women and girls. You can start by taking the online pledge to #EndViolence at women.gc.ca

YPSWA is a long time supporter of measures that end employment discrimination against women at workplace, too.

YPSWA is a not-for-profit and federally registered and community-based organization, which offers a great way for young professionals, skilled workers and apprentices to network, socialize and expand their professional horizons.
