16 Days Campaign

16 Days Feature

Join the International Community for 16 days of Activism Against Gender-based Violence

November 25 is the start of the United Nations-declared 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence Campaign, finishing on December 10 – Human Rights Day. The theme for this event in 2018 is:

Together we can end Gender-Based Violence
in the World of Work

The campaign looks at the different forms of violence that women and girls face. Human trafficking is one of the greatest examples of violence against women and girls.  Human trafficking is a $150 billion global industry – and growing. As well, millions of women and girls are forced to work in terrible conditions for little pay and no chance of an education.

Resources for participating in the 16 Days campaign can be found here.
