Resource: 2101 Theme– Structures of Violence: Defining the Intersections of Militarism and Violence Against Women

Leave a comment

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.
