Today, November 25th, has been declared The International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women by the United Nations. AMEN!
UN Secretary-General Ban-Ki Moon says, “Everyone has a responsibility to prevent and end violence against women and girls, starting by challenging the culture of discrimination that allows it to continue.” WOOP WOOP!
In honor of this day, Sabrered.com has let their blog be taken over by an awesome and inspiring project called Kuros! For every product they sell, they in turn give away pepper spray to women around the world where sexual assault is rampant. By arming these women in India and other developing countries they not only have #AFightingChance to defend themselves but they also have a sense of empowerment that they haven’t had before, that someone else is looking out for their safety as well.
Huge kudos to KUROS! I bow my hat to you, sir. You are a true #HeForShe supporter and a pioneer.
Watch this 15 second video they made for Instagram because I can’t figure out how to embed it here AND because they use Metallica as their theme song. SABREpost(instagram)
