16 Days of Activism


What is 16 Days of Activism?

16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence is a global campaign operating at a local, regional, national and international level to end gender-based violence. It is not a single event but rather a movement - a collective of initiatives demonstrating the solidarity of gender-based violence activists worldwide. Check out the information booklet below for more information.

Social media is a great way to connect, advocate and get the word out! We have compiled a social media toolkit for individuals and organisations looking to participate in the 16 Days of Activism campaign.

Library story telling

Local libraries are joining the campaign and reading fun, gender neutral stories to children in story time.  Children’s story time is free and you are welcome to attend.
