The 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Based Violence (16 Days) is a global campaign to raise awareness about violence against women and its impact on a woman’s physical, psychological, social and spiritual well-being.
The 16 Days begin on 25th November, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, and end on December 10th, International Human Rights Day. These dates were chosen to highlight that violence against women is a human rights abuse. (Click here to read more about the significant events during the 16 Days).
ECLC is proud to support #GE4Us, the 16 Days campaign led by Women’s Health East, which focuses on what gender equality looks like in action for the many diverse groups that shape Melbourne’s Eastern Metropolitan Region.
As the fundamental driver of violence against women is gender inequality, the #GE4Us campaign focuses on what gender equality looks like in everyday life by featuring community Ambassadors from Melbourne’s Eastern Metropolitan Region.
ECLC will also share reflections about gender equality from our team and community during the 16 Days on Twitter.
