16 Days of Activism against Gender-based Violence

  • Monday 25 November to Tuesday 10 December
    12.00am to 11.59pm


16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence is an annual international campaign that launches on 25 November, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, and runs until 10 December, Human Rights Day.

It is used as an organising strategy by individuals and organisations around the world to call for the prevention and elimination of violence against women and girls.

16 Days of Activism is an opportunity to raise awareness of key issues relating to gender-based violence, and can go a long way towards the vital change required to prevent instances of gender-based violence and provide the proper support when it is needed.
