5. Thanks.

I think it is important to stop pretending that certain words don't have power, especially considering the epidemic of violence against women and girls.

"Violence against women and girls is the most pervasive human rights violation. Up to seven in ten women experience violence in their lifetime. Governments have promised to end this pandemic. UN Women is calling on them to fulfill this promise and make new commitments to end violence against women and girls."
