November 25th has been designated the day of the Elimination of all forms of Violence against Women by the United Nations. Dr. Sorosh Roshan, one of the world’s current greatest advocates on women’s wellbeing and the president of IHAN (International Health Awareness Network) is extending an invitation to youth groups all over the world to share their ideas on how the youth can be involved in the elimination of violence against women on AV- Radio on December 2nd.

The premise is that youth empowered by experience and knowledge of the older generation can bring about desirable change. Thus, the intergenerational element, the cooperation between young and old, gives new and helpful perspectives necessary for addressing the pandemic of violence against women. This discussion will serve as part of the 16 days Campaign series of events from Nov. 25 to Dec. 10 (Human Rights Day) - please visit http://www.Ihan.org to see details about upcoming related events in December.
Join us this week as we discuss the role of the youths in combating violence against women.
SPECIAL GUESTS: STUDENTS FROM 'THE CITY COLLEGE OF NEW YORK'
Natalia Saavedra, Lila Benaissa, and Vanessa Muro will share their intergenerational perspectives on the topic. Their objective is to raise awareness and give the role of youth an important platform in solving problems, specifically, violence against women.
