The 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence (November - December) is a global campaign to raise awareness about violence against women and its impact on a woman's physical, psychological, social wellbeing and economic security.

It is not a single event in any one location but many local, regional, national and international initiatives aimed at uniting us all to end violence against women.

During the 16 days, people from around the world used the campaign to raise awareness about the prevalence and devastating impact of violence against women, to celebrate victories gained, challenge the structures that enable and support violence against women to occur at such an alarming rate, and demand that violence against women be recognised as an abuse of human rights.

In order to achieve gender equality, we must recognise that gender inequality affects us all, regardless of our age, ability, gender or culture. By raising awareness of why gender equality is important, we can help shift the conversation to action. 

For more information, call Tracey Egan, Gender Equity Officer, on 9518 3269.
