November 25-December 10 – 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence

November 25, 2022

is an annual international campaign that kicks off on 25 November, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, and runs until 10 December, Human Rights Day. It was started by activists at the inaugural Women’s Global Leadership Institute in 1991 and continues to be coordinated each year by the Center for Women’s Global Leadership. It is used as an organizing strategy by individuals and organizations around the world to call for the prevention and elimination of violence against women and girls.

This year, the Campaign is continuing the 2021 30th anniversary theme of Ending Femicide by spotlighting certain groups of women who are more vulnerable. In the upcoming months, the Campaign will also be releasing a 2022 Global 16 Days of Action Toolkit to mobilize global action to end femicide by helping campaigners join forces with the Global 16 Days Campaign and each other.
