16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence
This week marks the beginning of the global 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence campaign, an internationally-recognized campaign that calls for the eradication of gender-based violence (GBV).
The campaign begins on Nov. 25 — on the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women — and ends on Dec. 10, on Human Rights Day.
Violence against women and girls is a global crisis that needs to come to an end.
