Ending Violence Against Women

Ending Violence Against Women is a Committee of the Human Rights Task Force, addressing issues of domestic violence and sex trafficking, as well as other forms of violence against women. The Ending Violence Task Force was created in April 2008 to address issues of domestic violence, human trafficking and sexual exploitation in order to increase awareness and empower those women and children affected. Over the years, the Task Force has put a spotlight on the issues to get people talking about them. We also promote tangible actions that we can all take to help eradicate these forms of violence. When you look at the facts you see that we still have a long way to go.
