For far too long, impunity, silence and stigma have allowed violence against women to escalate to pandemic proportions—one in three women worldwide experience gender-based violence. 16 Days of Activism is an international campaign to challenge gender based violence in all its forms.
We start our 16 Days of Activism on 23 November with Fight for the Night, a march through the city centre of Glasgow to show solidarity to survivors of rape and sexual assault, and to demand safer streets for all.
From 25 November, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, to 10 December, Human Rights Day, we will be running a variety of workshops, discussion groups and events.
