About the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence
This website is part of an international campaign called 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence, led by the United Nations.
Day one of the 16 Days of Activism begins on 25 November, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, in commemoration of the Mirabal Sisters.
The last day of the 16 Days of Activism falls on International Human rights Day on 10 December, reminding us that violence against women is a violation of human rights.
Organisations in Melbourne’s west who are part of the Preventing Violence Together partnership come together to run activities or a campaign during the 16 day period, alongside other activities that take place throughout the year.
