16 Days of Action Against Domestic Violence
16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence is an International campaign to challenge gender violence. The campaign runs every year in November, The International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, to December, International Human Rights Day. Every year, the campaign adopts a new theme. This year's theme is Rape.
Each day during the 16 days of Action. Watford Women’s Centre will be posting stories, articles and research around the themes of rape and violence against women and girls. We want to inform and engage you in the discussion and encourage everyone to become an ambassador for the right of women to live free from gendered violence. Please click on the poster images below, to view the videos we have chosen for each topic, each day.
We also partnered with Watford Football Club on the 23rd November to launch the White Ribbon campaign in Watford. This event challenges men to lend their voices to a campaign to end male violence against women.
