16 days of action against gender based violence: time to speak out!

As the eyes of the world turn to the issue of gender based violence now is a great time to post stories on this topic.

The 2012 16 Days Campaign against gender based violence begins this Sunday (25 November).

As the eyes of the world turn to the issue of gender based violence now is a great time to post stories on this topic.

This year’s campaign takes the theme From Peace in the Home to Peace in the World: Let’s Challenge Militarism and End Violence Against Women!

The sub-themes of the campaign are:

  • Sexual and gender-based violence committed by state agents, particularly the police or military
  • Proliferation of small arms and their role in domestic violence
  • Sexual violence in and after conflict

Events are also going on all over the world to mark the 16 days, which may also make interesting stories. For more information about what is happening in your area, click here.
