Today is International End Violence Against Women day.

Globally, 1 in 3 women experience violence of one sort or another, and during times of crisis this number rises. Women and girls are more likely to face food insecurity, poverty and abuse. Women and girls are more likely to be subjected to sexual assault and verbal abuse, and feel less likely to be believed or helped were they to ask for help.

We want to live in a world where these statistics and stories are consigned to history. Our little part in that effort is the Sanctuary Network, building safe spaces for survivors of abuse in Milton Keynes. If you would like to know more about the day, and the following 16 days of activism, you can do so here.
