One in three women—1 billion around the world —will suffer physical, sexual or emotional abuse in her lifetime. Gender-based violence is often at the hands of a husband or male family member, making this human rights violation an often silent issue.
CARE is a humanity relief organization that works with local communities to promote women's education while advocating respect toward women in the community.
You can pledge your voice to CARE's campaign "Voices Against Violence" and encourage your friends to do the same. Your voice can help persuade governments to do more to prevent gender-based violence.
