16 Days of Activism 2018

16 Days of Activism is a global campaign to encourage and highlight important activism to eliminate violence against women and girls. Kicking off on Sunday 25 November (the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women) and running until Monday 10 December (Human Rights Day), the campaign draws attention to gender-based violence and important actions being taken to eliminate this form of violence.

Noting the gendered drivers of family violence and significant impacts it has on women and children in particular, this year the Monash Gender and Family Violence Prevention Centre (MGFVP Centre) will be participating in 16 Days of Activism by showcasing some of the Centre and colleagues' important and ongoing work to eliminate family violence.

We encourage you to explore the calendar of resources and activities we'll be highlighting each day of the campaign below, or follow us on Twitter (@MonashGFV) to hear about work we're doing to prevent, address and eliminate family violence.
