Welcome to our latest weekly Round-Up. We wish all of you a happy festive season and new year! We sincerely thank you for your support this year. In 2015, violence against women has attracted much-needed attention in the media. For this, we congratulate women’s organisations around the country, including our Advisory Group, for their tireless efforts. There is still much to be done to ensure that all women and children are safe from violence; however, the dedication of women around the country has shown that it is possible to start a national conversation about gender based violence, and make our concerns a national priority. We look forward to working with all of you in the new year!
