On December 6, 2017, CFUW will commemorate and honour the lives of victims of gender-based violence and stand in solidarity with all women experiencing violence, abuse, and harassment. For this occasion, CFUW continues the series on significant days to facilitate the conversation about the Sustainable Development Goals. “We believe the elimination of violence can only be realized with the understanding that aggression against one woman is abuse against all women. The individual cannot be separated from the community and therefore national epidemics of violence have a global impact” says Cheryl Hayles, V.P. International Relations.
