16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence
16 Days of Activism against gender-based violence is an international campaign. It takes place each year from 25 November (International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women) until 10 December (International Human Rights Day).
Throughout the campaign, we join with others globally to raise awareness of, and call for an end to, gender-based violence in all forms and in all societies.
The 16 Days of Activism against Gender Based Violence Campaign is an extension of the day-to-day grassroots work of Mothers’ Union, where we work alongside communities to help end gender-based violence and to support those affected by it.
Mothers' Union Global Day
What is the Mothers’ Union Global Day?
Our Global Day is centred around the disturbing figure that “1 in 3 women worldwide have experienced domestic or sexual abuse” and that Mothers’ Union as a leading women’s organisation believe this to be unacceptable.
The Global Day will take place on the 5th December 2020 and our initial plans were to ask members to “to step out of their comfort zones” and find a central location where their diocese could hold a peaceful protest. We wanted the event to begin at 11am so it could end with midday prayers.
