Check out Say NO - UNiTE

UNIFEM has launched a new campaign to help end violence against women world-wide: Say NO -- UNiTE. If you haven't checked it out yet, please do so soon. The site has all kinds of tools and information available -- statistics, fliers, web banners and widgets, ideas and suggestions on actions you or groups can take, e-mail lists, etc. Information such as this:
Domestic violence alone cost approximately US$1.16 billion in Canada and US$5.8 billion in the United States. In Australia, violence against women and children costs an estimated US$11.38 billion per year.You can also join an "action," or create one yourself, you can set up an account on the site, and you can donate.

One of the easiest suggested actions to take is to ask three individuals to join. I'm asking all of you, and I hope you ask everyone you know.
