    International Day for the Elimination of Sexual Violence in Conflict/World Refugee Day

    Every year on June 19, the United Nations celebrates the International Day for the Elimination of Sexual Violence in Conflict to address the grievances and rights of victims of sexual violence during war. On June 19, 2015, the United Nations General Assembly (A / RES / 69/293) declared June 19 of each year the International Day for the Elimination of Sexual Violence in Conflict.

    The theme of this day is to raise awareness of the need to end sexual violence in conflict. This day has a special role to play in honoring the victims and survivors of conflict-related sexual violence, sexual violence around the world, and of standing up for the eradication of these crimes, and of paying tribute to those who have lost their lives.

The term also refers to the trafficking of persons committed during a conflict for sexual violence or exploitation.

Appeals are being made to the government today.
