16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence is a global initiative that seeks to: raise awareness at the local, national, and international levels regarding violence against women, strengthen local work, link local and global activism, provide a forum for dialogue and strategy-sharing, pressure governments to implement the commitments they have made in national and international legal instruments, and demonstrate the solidarity of activists around the world.
The dates, November 25, International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, and December 10, International Human Rights Day, were chosen in order to symbolically link violence against women and human rights and to emphasise that such violence is a violation of human rights.

Within the framework of UNESCO’s actions to combat violence against women and enhance women’s rights and empowerment, and building on its central objective of promoting research that supports evidence-based decision-making, the Social and Human Sciences Sector in collaboration with the University of Hull, U.K., is currently undertaking a program of research on men and violence against women, gendered poverty and legal-socio-cultural factors influencing women’s access to freshwater.
The aim of this program of research is to develop policy recommendations on violence against women, and more specifically men and violence against women, gendered poverty and women’s access to fresh water. The second in this series of research meetings will be held in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of the Congo, in November 2010. It will build upon the success of the previous meeting, held in Pretoria in August 2007 on ‘Women’s Rights for Peace and Security in post-Conflict Democracies in sub-Saharan Africa’, which formed the basis for a productive dialogue with Ministers at the Forum of Ministers of Women’s Affairs of the Great Lakes Region in Mombasa in 2009, and for a series of policy papers and policy briefs, now available on the UNESCO website.

This episodic, interactive electronic game and social networking application, delivered globally via web and mobile technology, aims to engage, educate, and change attitudes of boys aged 8-15 years around the subject of violence against women. Employing the global popularity of football (soccer), the game design links the winning benefits of respect on the playing field to respectful behaviour towards girls and women in the player’s social sphere. The game features 3 major modes of play: narrative events, tactical football, and skill-building training mini-games.
