25 November - 16 Days Against Violence
Every year from November 25 to December 10 action "16 days against violence" is carried out around the world to draw attention to the problems of overcoming all forms of violence.
Currently, the most ancient traces of violence that have been found are those resulting from the practice of cannibalism. Marks of disarticulation, emaciation (the stripping of flesh), fracturing and calcination have been observed on Palaeolithic human bones.
1 in 3 women worldwide have experienced physical and/or sexual violence in their lifetime. Globally, as many as 38% of murders of women are committed by a male partner. 200 million women and girls have experienced female genital mutilation/cutting (FGM/C). Each year, 15 million girls are married before the age of 18. Men, children and the elderly are sometimes systematically abused. This must be stopped!
Aggression can happen as a natural response to stress, fear, or a sense of losing control. You might also respond with aggression when you feel frustrated, mistreated, or unheard — especially if you never learned how to manage your emotions effectively.
