16 Days of Activism Globally
16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence is a global annual campaign that brings attention to gender violence and highlights the work of activists all over the world. It was first initiated by the Women’s Global Leadership Institute, sponsored by the Center for Women’s Global Leadership in 1991. This year, the campaign is celebrating its 25th anniversary!
The campaign begins on November 25, the International Day Against Violence Against Women, and runs until December 10, International Human Rights Day. This year’s campaign theme is “From Peace in the Home to Peace in the World: Make Education Safe for All”.
