The event marked the United Nation's 16-day aim to eliminate violence against women. Addressing guests at the reception hall, Her Majesty said:

"We are uniting today to confront, rightly, what has been called a global pandemic of violence against women. Faced with such challenges, it can be hard to know what practical steps we can take to even begin to make a difference.”
