In November, the Consulate General commemorated the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women and launched the 16 Days Against Gender Based Violence Campaign. December 10th was International Human Rights Day and the end of this year’s 16 Days Campaign. Consul General Kurt Tong said, “In whatever form it takes, gender-based violence is an intolerable violation of human dignity. In 2017, let us renew our commitment to end the abuse that traps so many people around the world.”
