Description

Violence against women and girls is a global issue with 1 in 3 women across the world experiencing violence. Statistics show that the abuser is usually someone the woman knows: 38% of all murdered women are killed by their partners.
This animation, commissioned by Womankind Worldwide tells the story of a woman called Meron and her children who experience violence. One day she meets a women’s rights organisation working in her community and she learns about her and her daughters’ rights.
The film was made to publicise the event International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women (25th November 2014), Womankind urges international donors and national governments to prioritise tackling the underlying causes of violence and support women’s rights organisations to carry out this long-term work.
