What better way to celebrate International Women’s Day than to take a stand and work to protect women. Actor and United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) Goodwill Ambassador Antonio Banderas launched a global appeal asking the public, especially men, to end violence against women.

Banderas says, “Up to 60 percent of women around the world experience some form of physical or sexual abuse during their life, and as many as half of all sexual assaults are committed against girls under the age of 16. Two million women and girls are trafficked each year into prostitution, forced labour, slavery, or servitude. Young women and girls are often particularly vulnerable to early marriage, female genital mutilation and HIV – putting their health and rights at risk. This is unacceptable, and it must stop now.”

He asks men, if they see something, to say something. And notes that real men do not hit women. Watch the video for the full appeal, and share with friends. International Women’s Day launched over 100 years ago, but women are still not treated as equals and are subjected to unthinkable violence. Help in the fight against inequality and stand up for women.
