Violence against women has directly impacted more than 1 in every 3 women worldwide.  You may have heard this shocking statistic before, but have you thought about how the technology we use every day can empower us to turn the tables? 

November 25 begins 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence. Women and men around the world are coming together now to call for the elimination of all forms of violence against women. This year world pulse is focusing on the power of technology to create awareness and take action on this issue.
