16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence

Gender-Based Violence

Speak out and join a worldwide mobilization to resist gender-based violence in all its forms.

Look closely around you. Where do you see the impacts of gender-based violence? Do you see violence hidden away behind closed doors? Or do you see it out in the open in national policies? Is gender-based violence in the media messages you consume? Is it woven through your family history? Is it impacting the choices you make? How does violence affect your life and the lives of people you care about?

Now take another look around you. Where is progress happening? Do you see change brewing in classrooms or criminal justice systems? In the lessons we teach our sons? In groups of women—online and on the ground—joining together? Is it in our art? In the sound of our own voices breaking through silence?

The 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence Campaign begins on 25 November and continues through 10 December. We are seeking stories on the topic of gender-based violence from around the world.

Share your story. Share the source of your strength. Share your solutions for a way forward. Together, our voices are a rallying cry for global action and solidarity.
