16 days of activism against gender-based violence

What is the 16 days of activism against gender-based violence?

"The Global 16 Days Campaign, launched by the Center for Women’s Global Leadership (CWGL) at its first Women’s Global Leadership Institute in 1991, has been used worldwide to call for the elimination of gender-based violence (GBV). It is run annually from November 25 (International Day Against Violence Against Women) to December 10" (International Human Rights Day).

Are you weighing up what to do in your 2021-2022 actions against gender-based violence?

In a working culture of crowded diaries and many things to care about, a focus on and action about Domestic and Family Violence can adversely be reduced to a topic, a talk or an event. The purpose of our Reflections Kit is to support a more meaningful and enduring way to utilise the global attention on, and local responsibilities for, raising and maintaining awareness and understanding of gender-based violence.

Insight Exchange centres on the expertise of people with lived experiences of violence and gives voice to these experiences. It is designed to inform and strengthen social, service and systemic responses to domestic and family violence.

These insight-informed resources are designed to support you in building on your understanding of domestic and family violence and to support you in making insight-informed decisions. The materials can be used any time, in part or as a whole in your context. They can be used in the short term or over a longer period of time to match the priorities in your context.

Each of us has the chance in some way to influence others. To influence what is valued, and what decisions are made. No matter where you are you can make direct decisions, or influence the making of decisions, about responses to domestic and family violence. We ask that you use this work for good in your spheres of responsibility and opportunity.

What did people say about the 2020 prototype?

Workplace (National) Feedback

"I like that you can take a small slice of the kit and focus on one area for a campaign".

"The statements in each area are great and something I would like to look at including on our intranet as part of refreshing the information".

"Super excited about this. I am still considering different channels to make the work as effective as possible, but in general the resource provides heaps of opportunities for starting a conversation and layering it up on the go. This is definitely a framework that I am keen to use in November. Helpful when it comes to framing, language, sensitive areas etc".

"The participant page, that is new information for me and something I would be happy to share in our workplace through our contact officer networks an intranet pages. I know we have a number of colleagues with lived experience of domestic and family violence that may be drawn to sharing their insights".

EAP (National) Feedback

"It is beautifully written with the same respectful, inclusive and embracing tone of your other materials. I can see great value in this, particularly for us to share with our customers. A key obstacle in the FDV field is people not knowing where to start, and feeling intimidated by the subject, so the provision of language and guidelines is a critical starting point".
