International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women
Details:

One in three women around the world experience violence in their lifetime, often in the hands of someone they know, love and trust. Violence against women is a global pandemic and is a consequence of discrimination against women, in law and also in practice, as well as of persisting inequalities between men and women. November 25 marks the beginning of the 16 days of activism against gender-based violence, concluding on December 10, International Human Rights Day. This day is a call for action, aiming to raise public awareness and mobilizing people everywhere to bring about change.

International Day of Persons with Disabilities
Details:

Proclaimed by the United Nations General Assembly in 1992, this day aims to build awareness surrounding disability issues and to mobilize support for social justice initiatives focused on dignity, human rights and the well-being of all persons with disabilities. Each year the UN announces a theme to observe for this date, which provides an overarching focus on how society can strive for inclusivity through the removal of physical, technological and attitudinal barriers for people with disability. This year’s theme is “Transformation towards a sustainable and resilient society for all” and is about leaving no one behind and empowering people with disability to be active contributors of society.
