DAY  1 - How much do you know?

The 16 Days of Activism Campaign aims to raise awareness around the issue of Gender-Based Violence and encourages you to be proactive about the issue. Each day will feature one type of Gender-Based Violence that fellow human beings endure across the world: including women, children and people because of their gender identities.

By spreading awareness we aim to:

1. Motivate people who have been victims of any form of gender-based violence to speak up.

2. Encourage others who feel strongly about this topic to champion the cause with us. 

If you would like to find out how much you know already, take the link to the UN Women quiz on the picture!
