You don’t really need to collect a bunch of scary statistics to prove that violence against women is a national — and international — problem. UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon has said “Violence against women cannot be tolerated in any form, in any context, in any circumstance” and locally the Sisters of Charity are bringing attention to this crisis with their Violence Against Women National Conference. The day will feature a wide range of workshops like “Creating a Domestic Violence Free Zone” and “Cyberbullying,” along with “Human Trafficking,” “Women and Homelessness” and more.
