16 Days Activist Challenge

Helping to end violence against women in the west

Each year, people worldwide take action to eliminate gender-based violence during the international 16 Days of Activism, held from 25 November to 10 December. This year, 95 people signed up to be part of this movement, by taking the Preventing Violence Together (PVT) 16 Days Activist Challenge. Well done to all of you who took part!

The people who signed up as 16 Days Activists pledged to take action to promote gender equality and prevent violence against women over 16 days. We helped by providing a suggested list of 16 actions to choose from, and a few activists decided to make up one or two of their own.

The 16 Days of Activism might be finished, but it’s never too late to take action to end violence against women. If you’re wondering what you can do to help end violence against women, here are some ideas of where to start.
