Otro 25N: Día Internacional para la Eliminación de la Violencia contra las Mujeres. - Mujeres libres de violencia en Iberoamérica
Another 25N: International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women.

Gender violence, in its worst expression, femicide/femicide, is a serious multi-causal social problem with dire consequences for women with negative impacts for communities and Ibero-American States.

This persistence of violence against women, which constitutes an obstacle to the full development of their lives because it undermines their autonomy in multiple dimensions and contributes to perpetuating gender inequalities, even manifests itself in emerging forms that are still largely invisible, among them: political violence; sexual violence in workplaces, education and even in the public sphere, such as street harassment; media violence; obstetric violence; cyberviolence and also vicarious violence.

Aware of this reality, the countries of the Ibero-American Community have ratified the main international and regional instruments on gender equality and the 2030 Agenda, which establishes gender equality as an essential precondition for the achievement of all the Sustainable Development Goals. (SDG). These commitments have also been reflected in the successive Ibero-American Summits, being within this framework that in 2021 the Ibero-American Initiative to Prevent and Eliminate Violence against Women (IIPEVCM) was approved, becoming the first permanent platform for Ibero-American cooperation in the field of prevention and elimination of violence against women with 14 Ibero-American countries.

In a new 25N, this Ibero-American Initiative to Prevent and Eradicate Violence against Women encourages countries to continue joining efforts, commitments and resources that are aimed at generating decent living conditions for girls and women in our Ibero-American communities.

We encourage you to continue fighting for a cause as just and neglected as the right of women to live a life free of violence under the banner, so present on this day, of the Mirabal sisters: "If they kill me, I will take my arms out of the grave and I will be stronger" (Minerva Mirabal).
