What is 16 Days of Activism against Gender Based Violence?
The 16 Days of Activism is an annual international campaign that calls for the elimination of all forms of violence against women.
Starts: 25th November - International Day of Elimination of Violence against Women
Ends: 10th December - International Human Rights Day
White Ribbon pledge:
"Never commit, condone or remain silent about violence against women"
What is White Ribbon Fife?
White Ribbon Fife is a male-led campaign to end violence against women (with campaigns in over 70 countries world-wide). Violence against Women is often seen as a “women’s issue” - and we want to change that by enabling both men and women to challenge attitudes and gender stereotypes that allow violence against women to thrive.
How can I help?
- Take a pledge to ‘never commit, condone or remain silent about violence against women’
- Wear a white ribbon as a public demonstration of your support
