Violence prevention is the theme of this week’s Campaign to End Violence roundup.
Violence against women is prevalent in both physical and virtual spaces. And although online violence may be less tangible, it isn’t any less real.

Have a look at how we can make virtual spaces safer for women and girls, take our quiz to assess the health of your relationship and check out our poster to learn about the 5 aspects of a healthy relationship. If you are living with violence or know someone who is, you are not alone.
