Wednesday November 25 2015 is International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women. CARE’s prayer coordinator Celia Bowring said we all have a responsibility to speak out.
She said: “As a Christian woman, I feel incredibly strongly about this. We need to speak out because I understand 1 in 3 women worldwide has experienced physical or sexual violence and it’s outrageous.”
Celia added that we must also commit ourselves to prayer too: “Let’s not just protest because as Christians we can pray. So let’s stand with our sisters all over the world in whatever way God calls us to do just that.”
