No dia 25 de Novembro, Dia Internacional para a Eliminação da Violência contra as Mulheres, a UMAR organiza pela primeira vez uma Marcha pelo Fim da Violência Contra as Mulheres com o objectivo de sensibilizar a sociedadepara os crimes cometidos contra as mulheres. Com 46 organizações apoiantes, a marcha desfila pelas mulheres que continuam a ser sujeitas a violência de género, conjugal e doméstica sem que a Justiça se revele eficaz na sua proteção e punição destes actos criminosos.

Assim, aqui fica o apelo a todos e a todas para que saiam à rua para dizer que “a violência contra as mulheres não faz o nosso género e que não somos cúmplices nem indiferentes! Nem mais uma... estamos vigilantes!”
