don't prosecute rapists if they're married, or if they end up marrying the victim. Help us to end this – will you donate to #drawaline?


Why do you #drawaline?

1 in 4 women in the UK, and up to 70% in some parts of the world, have experienced sexual or physical violence. In recent months we have seen global outrage at the scale of this issue. But violence is not inevitable.

The time has come to #drawaline to end violence against women and girls. Will you take action?

Action: how UN Women are helping to eliminate violence

UN Women works to change the lives of survivors and preventing future violence all over the world. We work at the highest level, alongside governments to implement laws that will protect women, but also locally, in villages, towns and cities, to change behaviour and empower people of all genders to take a stand. We are changing the way the world works for women.

  • Help

    We are helping provide urgent medical and legal services that treat survivors of violence, such as emergency contraception, HIV prophylaxis and care kits. #drawaline for better treatment, respect and a safe place.

  • Empower

    We are supporting survivors through the services needed to move forward and stop violence from recurring. #drawaline to help survivors of violence rebuild their lives.

  • Resist

    Violence against women is not inevitable. There are ways to prevent it from happening and you can help. Everyone has a role to play. #drawaline to educate others that violence is wrong.

  • Transform

    We are transforming culture and working to ensure policy that protects women is enforced. #drawaline to help change laws and attitudes.

  • Rise

    We are helping survivors around the world to speak out, turn their lives around, and inspire others, holding perpetrators to account. #drawaline and break the silence.

  • Invest

    The economic effects of violence against women are devastating, with violence against women costing the world approximately 1.3 trillion pounds. #drawaline and let’s put our money where our mouth is.
