Statement marking the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women
Our second Annual General Meeting, coincided with the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women. On this occasion, the Commonwealth 8.7 Network released this joint statement calling upon leaders of member nations to redouble their efforts to create a safer Commonwealth for women and girls.
We network members, at the Network’s second Annual General Meeting on Friday, 25 November, announced support for this year’s theme, ‘UNITE! Activism to End Violence against Women and Girls’, and called upon Network colleagues as well as governments, the private sector, other civil society organisations, and other actors across the Commonwealth to work together towards the eradication of Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG).
