Starting on 25 November, 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence is a global campaign to end gender-based violence. The campaign is book-ended by the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women on 25 November and International Human Rights Day on 10 December. These days were chosen in order to symbolically link violence against women and human rights and to emphasise that violence against women is a human rights violation.
In 2020, WHIN is leading a social media campaign using inclusive social media tiles designed in-house, like the one shown below, to build on the ’16 Actions for 16 Days’ theme used in recent years. This theme, which incorporates gender equity, features one simple action per day that we can all take to prevent gender-based violence.
