#16Days

In support of CHIME FOR CHANGE

1 out of every 3 women worldwide will be physically, sexually or otherwise abused during her lifetime—with rates reaching 70 percent in some countries. Millions of girls and women are also held back by harmful laws, norms and practices that see women and girls killed for “honor” and girls pulled out of school and forced into child marriages. In some instances, countries lack the legislative and regulatory frameworks to protect women from marital rape and domestic violence.

25 November, the International Day of Elimination of Violence Against Women, marks the start of the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence. This 16-day campaign brings together leaders, activists and communities around the world in the fight against gender-based violence. 

Support the #16Days of activism by calling for a stop to harmful practices that hold girls and women back.
