16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence

25 November-10 December

The campaign for 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence is a unified effort to galvanise action towards ending violence against women and girls around the world.

To change the culture that drives gendered violence, we need to change the conversation. The campaign calls on us to create opportunities for dialogue between activists, policy-makers and the public, and empowers us to call out gender inequality, marginalisation and discrimination in our workplaces and communities.
