Today marks the beginning of ‘The 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence Campaign‘.
This international campaign originated from the first Women’s Global Leadership Institute coordinated by the Centre for Women’s Global Leadership in 1991. It spans from 25th November 2015 ( the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women) to 10th December 2015 (Human Rights Day) and is a time to galvanize action to end violence against women and girls around the world.
To mark the occasion, the Belfast Domestic Violence Partnership have provided us with ’16 Facts for 16 Days’, an infographic outlining eye-opening statistics relating to domestic violence worldwide.
Please feel free to share this infographic on your own social media and highlight the importance of the 16 Days of Activism Campaign
