Say NO – UNiTE to End Violence against Women is a global call for action, launched in November 2009, on ending violence against women and girls.

UNIFEM Goodwill Ambassador Nicole Kidman is the Spokesperson of Say NO.
Based on country data available, up to 70 per cent of women experience physical or sexual violence from men in their life-time. It happens everywhere – at home and at work, on the streets and in schools, during peacetime and in conflict. Violence against women and girls has far- reaching consequences, harming families and communities, stunting human development, and undermining economic growth. Everyone has a role to play in combating this global pandemic; the time to act together is NOW.
