The 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence is an international campaign that works to raise awareness about violence against women and the impact this violence causes to a woman’s well-being. The campaign runs from 25 November, the International Day of the Elimination of Violence Against Women to 10 December, the International Human Rights Day. Both these days highlight that violence against women and children is an abuse of human rights.
The DVPC jointly with the Domestic Violence Crisis Service hosted a Lunch and Panel discussion on 24 November about How to promote the Global 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence Campaign in Canberra and Beyond, and is showcasing local ACT initiatives as part of an awareness raising campaign on Facebook. https://www.facebook.com/DVPCCanberra/
