Violence Against Women and Girls Affects Us All.....

The 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence

 

What is the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence?

The 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence begins on the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women on November 25 and ends on International Human Rights Day on December 10.

They also include the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women and Girls on December 6. The 16 Days of Activism is a time to both reflect on violence against women and girls and to take action to end it.

  • The International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women was designated in 1999 by the United Nations General Assembly.
  • The date was chosen to commemorate the lives of the Mirabal sisters from the Dominican Republic who were violently assassinated in 1960.
  • The day pays tribute to them, as well as urging global recognition of gender violence. Each year on this day, governments, international organizations and NGOs are invited to organize activities designed to raise public awareness of the problem.

Gender-based violence affects us all. It destroys families, weakens the fabric of our society, and takes a heavy toll on our communities and our economy. Canadians are reminded during the 16 Days of Activism that they can take actions, now and throughout the year, to eliminate violence against women and girls in all its forms.
