Events and campaigns around the 'International Day against Violence against Women and Girls on November 25

Violence against women and girls is a violation of human rights. Every year on November 25, the "International Day against Violence against Women* and Girls*" draws attention to this global problem.

If we look at Germany, every third woman is affected by physical or sexual violence at least once in her life. Every day a perpetrator in Germany attempts to kill a woman, every third day a woman is murdered. Mostly by a current or former partner.

To illustrate this, these figures will be shown on info screens throughout the city on Saturday, November 25, from 3 to 9 p.m. under the motto "Fight FEMICIDE - every day".

In Frankfurt, attention will once again be drawn to the problem in various forms throughout the city.
