International day for the elimination of violence against Women.

UN General Assembly established the 25 November as International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women. Violence against women is a violation of humans rights. Every woman is entitled to recognition, enjoyment, exercise and protection of all human rights and freedom. Violence against women is a serious social problem that, in addition to questioning fundamental human rights because of its size, has consequences that are becoming an obstacle for developing countries.
Yesterday the Spanish senate gave a gold medal to a man from Irun for protecting a women who was being attacked. Unfortunately in the end the woman died and the man was hospitalised for a week but later recovered .
Violence against women is a crime of great propoprci├│n worldwide. It is a problem that must be taken with concrete policies to contribute to its reduction and eradication.
