In the month of November, every year, the start of the global 16 Days of Activism campaign against Gender-Based Violence takes place from the 25th November and the day also commemorates International Day Against Violence Against Women. The campaign ends on the 10th of December on Human Rights Day. In the span of these 16 days, the aim is to sharply reinforce the recognition of violence against women as a human rights violation. Started by activists at the Women’s Global Leadership Institute in 1991, this span of 16 days is a mass advocacy effort to reiterate and highlight the importance of accountability in spaces of violence. This year the United Nations Secretary-General’s UNiTE by 2030 to End Violence against Women campaign (UNiTE campaign) will mark the 16 days of activism under the theme “Orange the World: Generation Equality Stands against Rape!”
One Future Collective will be promoting active Bystander intervention throughout these 16 days with a mix of digital and offline events, resource creation and sharing, capacity development and building safe and informed spaces. We have a mix of digital and in person events planned through the course of this campaign till the 10th of December.
