16 Days of Activism against Gender-based Violence: Together We Can End GBV in Education!
Together We Can End GBV in Education! is the theme of the 2017 16 Days of Activism against Gender-based Violence. Starting today, activists throughout the world are tacking action toward ending violence.
The Campaign describes itself as “The ever-growing use of social media has expanded its reach and opportunities for community mobilization. More than 25 years after it first began, the 16 Days of Activism Campaign Against Gender Violence is an established and important international annual campaign to achieve higher visibility to gender-based violence as a violation of human rights, and not just a “problem for women.” Annual campaigning is an important opportunity to put the problem of gender-based violence in the international spotlight through awareness raising and concrete action.”
