Help us stop the sexual enslavement of Christian women

ACN #RedWednesday 2021 Petition
We call on the UK Government and the United Nations to take more effective steps to address the double jeopardy faced by women and girls from religious minorities in certain countries suffering sexual violence and persecution.
The petition will be handed to Fiona Bruce, the Prime Minister’s Special Envoy for Freedom of Religion or Belief.
In some countries, it is bad enough being a woman – it is even more dangerous being a woman or girl who is a Christian or from another minority faith group. Such girls and women live under the constant threat of abduction, sexual violence and forced conversion.
The United Nations’ (UN) International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women falls on Thursday 25th November – the day after #RedWednesday. In setting out the aims and objectives of the day the UN fails to mention of violence against Christian women and those of other religious minorities.
