We’re in the midst of the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence. A campaign that began in 1991, the 16 Days is held annually between November 25 (International Day Against Violence Against Women) and December 10 (International Human Rights Day). The period also incorporates World AIDS Day and the memorial anniversary of the Montreal Massacre on December 6. This year’s 16 Days theme is “For the health of women, for the health of the world: no more violence.”
The link provided above is a fabulous webpage that is well-worth exploring. Particular resources that stand out include, in PDF form, “Suggested Actions: 16 ideas for 16 days” as well as links that will provide you with more resources on both violence against women and on HIV/AIDS.
Take some time to explore these resources and learn how you can participate during the 16 Days, and also help educate people on these important issues.
