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.
