On Day of Non-Violence, UN calls for tolerance and respect to end prejudice, conflict
1 Oct 2010 -  Script: I am Ban Ki-moon, Secretary-General of the United Nations. In a globalized world, more and more of the problems we face can be solved only by governments working together. But there is one terrible problem that we can address as individuals: Violence against women. Millions of men and boys, in many countries, are stopping this violence. When they suspect that they hear the sounds of a woman or girl being abused... They ring the doorbell and ask “Can you tell me the time?” This is a simple step – but a very effective one. It interrupts what's happening. It shows that people are watching and listening. It may give a woman the chance to escape. It helps to stop the violence. Find out more at bellbajaoglobal-DOT-org.
