64 Day Campaign Week Eight Summary: Women's Rights

November 25th marked the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women. Seventy percent of women experience violence in their lifetime according to a compilation of statistics produced by the United Nations. According to a UN Study on the Status of Women in 2000, somewhere in the United States a woman is battered, usually by her intimate partner, every 15 seconds.
 
As we continue our countdown to International Human Rights Day (12/10/2012), the 64 Day Campaign for Human Rights highlights organizations promoting the human rights of women and girls. Read and share with others their work to defend against violence, ensure economic justice, sexual freedom, and reproductive rights.
 
You can share their Facebook highlights, and retweet our daily spotlights on Twitter using the hashtag #64DaysHR.
 
The 64 Day Campaign is a way to raise awareness about domestic human rights issues and the organizations affirming economic, social, cultural, political and civil rights.
