International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women

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.”
