The United Nations General Assembly has designated November 25 as the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women.

โ€ข November 25: International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women

--
Historically, the date is based on the date of the 1960 assassination of the three Mirabal sisters, political activists in the Dominican Republic; the killings were ordered by Dominican dictator Rafael Trujillo (1930โ€“1961).

In 1981, activists at the Latin American and Caribbean Feminist Encuentros marked November 25 as a day to combat and raise awareness of violence against women more broadly; on December 17, 1999, the date received its official United Nations (UN) resolution.
