Manifesto Violence against women is the most pervasive yet least recognized human rights abuse in the world. For over three decades, women's advocacy groups around the world have been working to draw attention to the physical, psychological, and sexual abuse of women and to stress the need for action. We have provided abused women with support and protection, lobbied for legal reforms, and challenged the pervasive culture of violence. Peace Over Violence has a grassroots origin revolving around volunteer contributions. We are present in the streets, schools, hospitals and courts ; acting up, advocating against and healing violence. Our call for action over the last 35 years for a world free of violence has garnered widespread respect, support and dedicated allies among police, prosecutors, politicians, healthcare providers, individual supporters, celebrities and a growing list of sponsors from corporations and foundations. We understand violence in relationships, families and communities is a root cause for violence in society. To address the problem at its core is to change how this problem manifests and magnifies itself in society at large. Changing an individual point of view toward sexual, domestic and interpersonal violence will ' one on one, one by one ' cause social change, a transformation of society, a world without violence. Our vision is a world without violence. Where no child is abused, no wife battered, no friend raped. A world without terror, without threats, without wounds from intentional actions. Where the strong provide for the vulnerable, where the vulnerable become empowered, where every kind of family is safe and secure, and girls and boys and women and men have a fair and equal chance at the pursuit of happiness in a tolerant and talented society.
