International Women’s Day: Striving Towards a World of NO Violence Against Women


international womens dayToday we celebrate yet another International Women’s Day. This year it is being celebrated under the theme, “Empowering Women – Empowering Humanity: Picture It!”

According to the United Nations, “International Women’s Day is a time to reflect on progress made, to call for change and to celebrate acts of courage and determination by ordinary women who have played an extraordinary role in the history of their countries and communities.” In keeping with this year’s theme, the United Nations “envisions a world where each woman and girl can exercise her choices, such as participating in politics, getting an education, having an income, and living in societies free from violence and discrimination.”

Striving for a world in which women can live free from violence and discrimination

In spite of worldwide efforts over the many years, to end violence against women, our world society is still battling with the issue of protecting women from domestic violence and abuse and abuse and violence from intimate partners.

Women’s Health.Gov reported that each year over 5 million women are victims of domestic violence! How can we end this epidemic?

CEO/Founder of this website, Olivia J. Scott, takes yet another look at this deep-seated social problem that has plagued our society for so long. To celebrate International Women’s Day and Month, her book, BATTERED WOMAN”S DILEMMA: In a Struggle for Survival, will be released in March, 2015. It will be available on Amazon.com in print and on Kindle. This much-anticipated book brings to the world the stories of real women who survived domestic violence, and highlights some of the many challenges victims face in leaving their abusive relationships.

Special attention is also given to breaking the cycle of violence and the pursuit of physical, emotional, and psychological healing and empowerment in the aftermath of the violence.
