16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence
Time for Change
16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence is an international campaign to challenge violence against women and girls. The campaign runs every year from November 25th, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, until December 10th, Human Rights Day. It was initiated in 1991 by the first Women's Global Leadership Institute, held by the Center for Women's Global Leadership (CWGL) at Rutgers University. Impunity, ignominy and silence have allowed violence against fellow human beings because of gender or gender identity to escalate to pandemic proportions. It is time to let the voices of survivors be heard and work toward ending gender-based violence in its entirety!
Join us on December 11th to raise awareness on the topic of gender-based violence, a phenomenon endured by people all over the world. For far too long violence against fellow human beings, including women, children, and people of different gender identities, has been one of the most prevalent human rights violations in the world. It knows no social, economic or national boundaries. Gender-based violence undermines the health, dignity, security, and autonomy of its victims, yet it remains shrouded in a culture of silence. It is time to end the silence and relay the stories of survivors to work toward the end of gender-based violence.
