16 Days of Activism against Gender based violence to launch this week

23 November 2020

A 16-day programme of virtual events to tackle gender-based violence will launch this Wednesday, 25 November.

The launch of the programme coincides with the White Ribbon Day where, as in previous years, community leaders are asked to lead the way and reaffirm a promise to never commit, excuse or remain silent about male violence against women.

Details of the 16 Days of Activism programme are below and all events are open to anyone to attend, subject to availability, but may be of particular interest to anyone who has safeguarding responsibilities as part of the paid or voluntary work.

Find out more about Domestic Abuse and other forms of Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG).
