The 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence originated from a petition that was circulated during the 1991 United Nations World Conference on Human Rights.

 

The 16 Days of Activism begins on the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women (25 November) and ends on International Human Rights Day (10 December). The dates for the campaign were chosen to link violence against women and human rights. During this time, organisations and individuals from around the world raise awareness about women’s rights being human rights, and that violence against women is a fundamental violation of those human rights.

 

To celebrate this years 16 Days of Activism, we are heading out and about to have conversations with communities in our rural communities. It is free to attend and we would love you to come along!

 

We have a heap of organisations that are joining us for the roadshow! And we cannot wait to come to a town near you.

 

Join us for a free morning tea, meet and greet with your local organisations and hear about how you can help "call it out" by the legal team at Hume Riverina Community Legal Service.
