16 Days

16 Days of activism against gender based violence | 2021

"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 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 (DFV).

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.
