The 25 November, International Day against Violence against Women, is the day established by the General Assembly of the United Nations by the 1999 and represents the day throughout the world to reaffirm, spread and raise awareness, especially the young generations, about this very serious phenomenon that unfortunately, Italy is increasingly involved. According to ISTAT data, almost 7 are millions of Italian women who have suffered violence at least once in their life.

The whole world of football will join the International Day against Violence against Women. The Lega Serie A and WeWorld Onlus have renewed their commitment to defending women's rights and against all forms of abuse towards the female universe by presenting, in view of the Day, the third edition of the national awareness campaign #unrossoallaviolenza. The players and the referees of the Serie A will take the field with a red mark on their faces and will be accompanied on the pitch by a child mascot.
The Women's Football Department of the National Amateur League, which has always been sensitive to the issue of gender-based non-violence, has also invited all the players and participants in the competitions to bring the red mark on their faces.
The companies of Group C of the C Series have already been involved, since last November 17, in the organization of a special initiative in support of women victims of violence: "Ball for women against violence". The awareness campaign launched in the 2018 by the company Spezia Calcio Femminile, this year is supported by the Women's Football Department to amplify the spread of the message and reach everyone's conscience.
Many initiatives in this regard will see the protagonists of women's football involved: the Sassari Torres company will distribute information brochures on services for women victims of violence in Sardinia together with the umbrellas that carry the slogan "Sheltered from violence" while Res Women will participate in an event, in Rome, in which athletes will share moments of reflection on gender violence as well as showing their football skills.
