International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women

Today is the U.N International Day for the Elimination of violence against Women. Held annualy since 1981 in commemoration of the murder of the three Mirabel sisters in the Dominican Republic in 1960, on orders of Dictator Rafael Trujillo.

There will be a seminar/festival held by the Cairo Institute for Human Right Studies and al Takaieba artistic & Cultural Development Center from 7 P.M, it´s free of charge and the address can be found here.

I will update this post during the night, but i will give you the excellent study by al Nadeem Center for the rehabilitation of victims of violence and torture, their work and contribution is invaluable. The study is called: Once again.. Women speak out, it´s a PDF.
