Pope: So many women are overwhelmed with burdens of life and drama of violence!

Pope Francis has also raised his voice in the "International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women." He has done so with this symbolic message on Twitter. "So many women are overwhelmed with the burdens of life and the drama of violence! The Lord wants them to be free and their dignity respected,â? wrote the pope.  November 25, 2000, marked the first international day against gender violence. Statistics show that seven out of every 10 women are victims of violence at one point in their life. Even more startling is that every 10 minutes somewhere in the world, a man kills the woman who is or was his partner. JMB/MB RR VM -BN Up:JRB
