16 Days of Activism


From November 25, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, to December 10, Human Rights Day, the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence campaign is a time to galvanize action to end violence against women and girls around the world. The initiative provides a moment to bring the issue of violence against women to global prominence and also presents the opportunity for resource mobilization for the issue. Each year’s campaign has a new theme and activities.
