There is no excuse for violence against women and there is no excuse for ignoring it.

This is the rallying cry of the campaign from the World YWCA. “This is your fault; you’ve dishonoured the whole family!” The NoXcuses campaign questions the validity of similar sentences commonly used when a violent act is committed. Oftentimes, both parties involved in such an act don’t realise that no excuse is acceptable as violence is a violation of women’s fundamental human rights.
