Every year we support the 16 Days of Action campaign to end violence against women. This year we will be fundraising to raise money for the vital work that organisations in Glasgow do to support survivors in our local community.

Student Exec Statement

Our Student Exec team at Strath Union consider the elimination of gender-based violence and the aims of the 16 Days of Action to be a priority:

As your elected Student Exec, we fight vigorously by your side when challenges and injustice are facing you. However, there are many things we should not still be fighting against in 2022, and sexual harassment and assault are one of them!

"From the spiking incidents last year to the many more cases students face on returning to campus to the daily threat we face just being in public, it has constantly shown how much more work should be done here at Strathclyde and in society as a whole.  

We strive to challenge the culture and to campaign for what has been affecting your daily life and university experience. This year, in 2022, we are back for '16 Days of Action' to show that we do not tolerate harassment and gender-based violence on campus. A series of campaigns and workshops will take place from the 25th of November to the 10th of December.  

We aim to raise awareness and call for action to tackle gender-based violence, empowering and supporting survivors and educating the general student body. We will march with you on the 8th of December in the 'Fight for the Night' campaign. All are invited to participate as we march down the street with you to reclaim the night. This is a night of empowerment. We will unite, stand with the survivors and tell the world, 'we want our nights back!'"

Fight for the Night

Towards the end of this year’s 16 Days of Action, on Thursday 8th December 2022, we will be taking to the streets of Glasgow for our biggest event - Fight for the Night - to show solidarity with survivors of rape and sexual assault, and to demand safer streets for all.

The march will be followed by an evening event in the Venue (Strath Union - Level 2) from 7 pm where tea/coffee refreshments will be provided.
