Violence against women is a problem we all must attack with no hesitation, and one way of doing this is through design and visual messages.
November 25 is the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, a cause that continues to gain strength. Many women continue to live in complicated and vulnerable conditions and there are alarming data that indicate this type of hate crimes are far away from being eradicated.
