|Woman's Aid Launch|
International research demonstrates that a woman is more likely to be assaulted, injured, raped, or killed by a current or former partner than by any other person. The launch of the 16 days took place on November 25th which is the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women.
On December 9th, Limerick Women’s Network held a one day conference with Banulacht on Women’s Human Rights in Thomond Park, Limerick. LCDP workers Liz Price and Elaine Dalton were among the organisers. Hundreds of groups from around the country – many supported through the LCDP – took part in balloon launches and other initiatives during the 16 days.
