December 10 is Human Rights Day - the day the United Nations General Assembly adopted, in 1948, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights establishes the equality and dignity of every human being and stipulates that every government has a core duty to enable all people to enjoy all their inalienable rights and freedoms. All of us have a right to speak freely and participate in decisions that affect our lives. We all have a right to live free from all forms of discrimination. We have a right to education, health care, economic opportunities and a decent standard of living. We have rights to privacy and justice. Human rights are everyone's rights. Know your rights, and help spread the word. #StandUp4HumanRights #HumanRightsDay #UreportNigeria

Violence can negatively affect women’s physical, mental, sexual, and reproductive health, and may increase the risk of acquiring HIV in some settings. Girls need to live in dignity and free from violence. #ENDViolence #16DaysAction #UreportNigeria #SpeakUpSpeakOut
