International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women

In response to the violence against women, women activists marked the 25th of November as the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, followed by the global 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-based Violence (GBV).

Violence against women and girls is one of the most widespread and devastating human rights violations in the world, and that remains largely unreported due to the impunity, silence, stigma, and shame surrounding it. Therefore, in every country and culture, more action is needed to ensure women in all their diversity live a life free of violence and coercion.

How to observe #16DaysofActivism?

 Organise or participate in a march in your community

 Reach out to women who have experienced violence against them

 Donate to an organisation that supports GBV survivors

 Take a firm stand against GBV

 Take part in the #UNiTE campaign to end violence against women by wearing orange to symbolise a brighter future for women.

Gender-based violence against women and girls in all our diversity is not only preventable, but it must also urgently be prevented. Activism mobilises more people to support efforts in ending violence and to push back against the rollback of women’s rights.
