November 25 – December 10
The 16 days of activism against gender-based violence is a global moment which draws attention to violence against women and motivates communities across the world to speak out.
Christian Aid Scotland has taken part in this global campaign since 2016, using social media to share pledges from faith leaders and activists committing themselves to work together to #endGBV.
Why these particular 16 Days?
The 16 Days of activism marks the days between International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women (25 November) and International Human Rights Day (10 December). The ultimate goal of these 16 days is to reinforce elimination of all forms of violence against women. The days of activism also include:
- November 29 – International Women Human Rights Defenders Day
- December 1 – World AIDS Day
- December 5 – International Volunteer Day for Economic and Social Development
- December 6 – Anniversary of the Montreal Massacre
