16 Days Of Action Events

posted 11 Nov 2016, 06:27 by Communications TEAM
The ‘16 Days of Action’ is an international campaign that calls for the elimination of violence against women and children. It was started by
the Centre for Women’s Global Leadership in 1991. The 16 Days run from November 25th (International Day against Violence against Women) through to December 10th (International Human Rights Day) with the aim of reframing women’s rights as human rights. 

Whilst this campaign focuses specifically on male violence against women, it is recognised that men can also be subjected to many of these issues, as can people in same sex relationships, however in the vast majority of cases these acts are carried out by men against women. Please come along to one of the events detailed in the attached newsletter and make the 16 Days a time when we all speak out against violence against women.
