Inspiring Anti Violence Quotes for International Day of Non-Violence

The scourge of violence is pervasive in countries across the world. All sectors of society are affected. Whether in a developed or developing economy, there is violence.

Intimate partners are affected by domestic abuse.

Children daily suffer peer bullying, to the extent that they no longer want to attend school.

Cyberbullying is on the rise. It is the easiest way to torment someone as it can be done anonymously. Teens have committed suicide because of what was said about them online.

In war-torn countries, civilians are exposed to unspeakable acts that claim the lives of the innocent. Indiscriminate bombings kill hundreds. Children living in war zones are highly traumatized.

Many celebrities have spoken out about the problem, showing a strong stance against violence with anti violence quotes that are thought-provoking.

Here are some interesting anti violence quotes about taking a stand against this terrible problem:

 

Anti violence quotes : Domestic violence

 

01Domestic violence can be so easy for people to ignore, as it often happens without any witnesses and it is sometimes easier not to get involved. Yet, by publicly speaking out against domestic violence, together we can challenge attitudes towards violence in the home and show that domestic violence is a crime and not merely unacceptable. – Honor Blackman
