I Dream Of A Day When There is No More Violence Against Women

Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King Jr, Eleanor Roosevelt, Abraham Lincoln Mahatma Gandhi, Aung San Suu Kyi, Malala Yousafzai etc. These crusaders have fought tirelessly for civil rights, human rights & democracy and today is the day to honor them. 

Today, the world observes United Nations' Human Rights Day, a date that was chosen to commemorate the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948. Do you remember the tenets of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights? Check out this illustrated version here.

Also, check out this interactive timeline that highlights milestones in a number of critical human rights areas. We've come far but we've still got a long way to go!
