Motion text

That this House welcomes the launch of Action Aid's Fearless campaign; understands that the campaign, launched last week, aims to create far-reaching change and encourage governments, women and men to take concerted action to tackle violence against women and girls around the world; notes with concern that one in three women across the world will experience violence in their lives and understands that violence against women is one of the most widespread violations of human rights; believes that violence against women has a widespread impact, not just holding back the women it affects, but holding back their families and communities too; understands that the Fearless campaign will put women front and centre, giving the public the opportunity to hear their stories, and contribute to the growing conversation; and commends Action Aid for its Fearless campaign and its efforts to give women a platform for their voices to be heard.
