Stop the violence“Violence against girls and young woman is any type of violence whether physical, sexual or psychological that occurs to a girl. It can be anything from a threat to physically beatingsomeone up because they are a girl.” “Violence against girls and young women is any act whichhurts a girl or young women that was committed due to their gender.”Violence against girls and women is one of the most widespread violations of human rightsaround the world. And it is not getting any better. As the world stays silent girls continue to beexploited, abused, raped and killed. Their voices are silenced and their choices limited. This iswrong and must stop……and we believe that our Movement, as the largest in the world for girlsand young women has an integral role to play to make this to stop.WAGGGS new campaign Stop the violence is made to achieve just that. Our campaign isunique because it is not about us saving girls, or treating them like victims. At its heart, the campaign is about empowering girls and young women to understand their rights and have the skills and confidence to claim their rights and the rights of others. Alreadymany of our members and volunteers are working on stopping the violence.You might think there are a lot of campaigns out there to end violence against girls. There arenot. There are some that focus on ending violence against women. There are some that focuson ending a specific form of violence in a specific place. But there are no global campaignsdedicated to ending violence in all its forms against girls and young women.UN Women’s end violence against women section tell us that this is a space where there is nodata, no voice, no programmes and no investment, and our research shows this to be true onthe ground. Our education programme on ending violence and girls’ rights is unique in theworld, the only global programme of its kind
To promote this cause, we want everybody to know what we stand for and how can they takeaction.Did you know:
In Europe, seven women die every day from male domestic violence
One in four female students on UK campuses have been subject to an unwantedsexual experience at University or College
80,000 women experience rape or attempted rape in the UK every year 
40-50 percent of women in the EU have experienced sexual harassment in theworkplace
Every year in the EU, 180,000 girls living in the EU are at risk of female genitalmutilation and 500,000 women and girls in the EU already live with female genitalmutilationBuilding from a whisper to a shout, we need to talk, join together and inspire action around theworld.Do the activity: Repeating after the facilitator to add the voice to the campaign -starting withrubbing hands slowly and down low, start to clap from side to side, the clapping gets faster andadd in stamping your feet, get faster and louder, add in a voice covering and uncovering your mouth saying aaaah, finally finish with jumping in the air and shouting stop the violence#Stop the violence video!!!So how are we going to stop the violence? How are we going to speak out for girls’ rights? Andhow can we ensure that the voices of our members already working on this topic are heard andlistened to?
