Global Day 2021

Saturday 27 November 2021 was Global Day – the focus of Mothers’ Union’s 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence.

This day centred around the disturbing figure that “1 in 3 women worldwide have experienced domestic or sexual abuse” and that Mothers’ Union as a leading women’s organisation believe this to be unacceptable.

Much press and research has also shown that cases of domestic violence have increased during lockdown and the pandemic and so there is more need than ever to join together and say “No more 1 in 3”.

What are we doing on this Global Day?

We will gather, where possible, for a three-minute silence at 1.03pm (linking to the 1 in 3 theme). We want to make this as big as we can, combining the voices of our four million members around the world – calling for action on an international scale and in the countries where we live.
