25 November-10 December - 16 Days of Activism to Stop Violence Against Women

Established in 1991, this international campaign officially begins on 25 November (International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women and White Ribbon Day) and ends on 10 December (World Human Rights Day). Its aim is to highlight the connection between women, violence and human rights. The sixteen day period focuses community attention on gender-based violence.

Awareness raising activities are undertaken in our area by the Domestic Violence Liaison Committee and other local organisations – but of course, the work must continue year-round.
