Swansea Women’s Aid used popular Swansea bar Noah’s Yard’s daily-changing sign to highlight violence against women as a part of our International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women and 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence activities.

Swansea Women’s Aid  decided to use the sign, which has become a local icon, to raise awareness of violence against women. The sign, which is often known for its jovial messages, takes on a more serious tone as it sends out a powerful message to passers-by stating “End Violence Against Women”.

CEO of Swansea Women’s Aid, Lynne Sanders said: “The sign is a really effective way of getting people talking about violence against women and will hopefully send a message that there are people, including organisations such as ourselves, who are actively working hard to ensure the elimination of violence against women.”

The sign was shared widely over social media and helped to start conversations about domestic abuse and to raise awareness of violence against women.
