WASHINGTON, April 22 /PRNewswire/ -- The YWCA USA will join many of its local affiliated associations across America in observing World YWCA Day on April 24. This year's theme is "Women Creating a Safe World" and YWCAs around the world will advocate for an end to violence against women and girls, an end to the HIV and AIDS epidemic, and an end to global poverty.

"This day unites all the members of our global YWCA community and reaffirms our common commitment to world peace, human dignity, and justice for all women and girls," said Lorraine Cole, Ph.D., CEO of YWCA USA. "Working together, we are shaping a different world in which all our daughters can thrive and succeed."

The World YWCA Day is also a day of celebration. YWCAs around the world will celebrate women's leadership as individuals, political activists, and community leaders. "We are very proud to be a member of the World YWCA and salute its critically important work in 125 countries and 22,000 communities around the world," Cole said.
