For more than 20 years, the YWCA has set aside one week in October as a Week Without Violence. This initiative is part of a global movement to end violence against women and girls. This year, the focus is on ending gender-based violence. According to YWCA USA, Gender-based violence is recognized as a spectrum of violence, including but not limited to, intimate partner violence, sexual assault, trafficking, and harassment.
