16 Days of Activism against Gender Violence

Editor: The 16 Days of Activism against Gender Violence is a global campaign to raise awareness about violence against women and its impact on a woman’s well-being. It commences on 25 November, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women and concludes on 10 December, Human Rights Day.
