This International Women's Day, artist aleXsandro Palombo (known for drawing Disney princesses with disability) put a call out for women to speak out against violence towards women using the hashtag #BriefMessage.

We must continue to work together and learn together so that we can create dynamic and lasting solutions to end violence against women and girls, in all its forms, both here and around the world.” wrote Chelsea Clinton, vice chair for Clinton Foundation in her blog.

Let's all take an oath that as a society, we will never subjugate women both economically and physically, and end the patriarchy.
