16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence

submitted November 26, 2014 by Matthew Ellis   |   comments

Yesterday began the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence campaign. 

Beginning on International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women (November 25) and concluding on International Human Rights Day (December 10), the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence Campaign emphasizes that gender-based violence is a human rights violation. The theme, “From Peace in the Home to Peace in the World: Let’s Challenge Militarism and End Violence Against Women!” underlines diverse challenges and contributors to gender-based violence and the effects of militarism, economic and social rights violations, sexual orientation and gender identity, disability, health, and political rights on our intersectional identities and experiences.

Throughout the next 2 weeks, we will be highlighting resources, linking to other blog posts and doing our part to bring awareness to this critically important issue.

Stay tuned!
