16 Days of Action Against Domestic Violence.
Monday 25 November 2019
The 16 Days of Action Against Domestic Violence is an annual international campaign that stems from the original movement, 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence. The movement was first begun at the Women’s Global Leadership Institute in 1991, an event sponsored by the Centre for Women’s Global Leadership.
Since 1991, 5,167 groups in 187 countries have contributed to promoting and supporting these 16 Days. Large organisations such as the world-renowned Amnesty International and World Health Organisation support and celebrate the 16 Days, as well as far more local, grassroots projects.
