International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women

Next Thursday 25th November we celebrate the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women.

Women’s activists have marked 25 November as a day against violence since 1981. This date came from the brutal assassination in 1960, of the three Mirabal sisters, political activists in the Dominican Republic, on orders of Dominican ruler Rafael Trujillo (1930-1961).

In our school we will organize activities to raise public awareness of the problem on that day.

We will decorate our school with posters in Spanish, English and French.

And now listen to these sad songs by Christina Aguilera “I’m OK” and “Oh mother”. She tells a true story about herself. She had to live a painful childhood with her father beating her mum.

Here is another song sent by Isa Conde: Face Down by the Red Jumpsuit Apparatus.

Celine Dion has also a beautiful song against this type of violence “This Time”.

Finally the new version of “I love the way you lie. Part 2” by Rihanna. What she feels is not love. LOVE IS NOT ABUSE!

Here is a message we all must learn in the song sent by Cosy “Pearl”  by Katy Perry: YOU ARE UNSTOPPABLE!

I hope you like the songs and get the message.

  1. maria barrera perez y patricia osto says:

    Better than “all” the support to victims of gender violence, try to end these tragedies because we are all equal.

  2. maria & elena says:

    I don’t agree that the man beats the woman because I think it’s not fair.
    I think this is a important day for the women, because is a day to remember the dead women.

  3. Alvaro B. Rivera Centeno & Jose A. Tebar Falcon says:

    We think that violence against women is really bad, just like bullying or violence in general. We must all stop violence on women.

  4. Laura and Aroa says:

    I think everyone should think the same about gender violence because it is something that nobody wants, but some of us may think it is a good way to help those who are suffering from that.

  5. Paola Fernández Rey says:

    I hate violence, violence is stupid. I don’t like violence.

    violence + man = animals

    The worst is not the people who hit a woman, it is the people who look to another side.

    By = A woman (… a girl)

  6. Lorena Salinas Macarro y Paola A. Ribera Zenteno says:

    Lorena:
    Stop all violence against women. I think it’s horrible that women suffer daily attacks. All for a righteous life for all, we all have rights, and women too.

    Paola:
    My opinion is that women suffer daily attacks and many people see that they do not say anything for fear. If someone knows that someone has suffered attacks they should say that because the damage can be fatal.

  7. Marta Segura Real says:

    ASHANTI – RAIN ON ME

    I’m lookin’ in the mirror
    At this woman down and out
    She’s internally dyin’
    I know this was not what love’s about

    I don’t wanna be this woman
    The second time around
    ‘Cause I’m wakin’ up screamin’, no longer believin’
    That I’m gonna be around

    And over and over I tried
    Yet over and over you lied
    over and over I cried, yeah
    I don’t know why

    And over and over I tried
    Yet over and over you lied
    over and over I cried, yeah
    I don’t know why

    Rain on me
    Lord, won’t you take this pain from me
    I don’t wanna live, I don’t wanna breathe
    Baby, just rain on me
    Lord, won’t you take this pain from me
    I don’t wanna live, I don’t wanna breathe, tell ya just

    See, I don’t want to hug my pillow late at night no more
    I’m tossin’ and turnin’ and thinkin’ ’bout burnin’ down these walls
    I-I don’t wanna fuel this fire no more, no more, no more
    See, I made up my mind ’cause I’ve wasted my time
    Ain’t nothin’ here to keep me warm

    I’m so tired of the rain
    In my life
    And I’m so tired of the strain
    And now you’re gonna lie

    BE A REAL MAN, DON’T BETTER WOMEN

    Katy’s talking about her new song called pearl, she’s saying that this song is dedicated to the people that feel in a shell and can’t go out because of friends… and of course of men.
    This song will help you to be stronger and be a pearl.
