Each day from November 25 through December 10 different members of the Club will add comments to raise awareness about this important subject.
Violence against women and girls continues to be a major global, national and local issue. “16 Days of Activism to End Gender-based Violence” begins November 25, International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, and ends December 10, International Human Rights Day, symbolically linking violence against women with human rights. The Campaign calls for the elimination of all forms of violence against women with the aim of raising awareness and solutions and strengthening victim, organizational and government support. Over 5,167 organizations in approximately 187 countries have participated in the 16 Days Campaign since 1991.
