International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women (IDEVAW) was recognised on November 25 worldwide to bring awareness to the issues surrounding women and gender-based violence.
Locally, the Girl Guides Association hosted a prayer breakfast at the Terra Nova All-Suite Hotel in St Andrew. Here are some highlights:
