Over the next 16 days we’re joining the global movement to raise awareness of and take action against gender-based violence as part of the 16 Days of Activism campaign.

Running from the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women on 25 November through to World Human Rights Day on 10 December, this campaign calls for action against one of the world’s most persistent violations of human rights – violence against women.

Gender-based violence is the leading cause of death, illness and disability for women aged under 45 in Australia.

The women involved feel the effects in a number of ways – their physical and mental health is likely to suffer and they are much more likely to end up homeless or living in poverty.

You can read more on our website about our advocacy to prevent gender-based violence. To find out more about 16 Days of Activism, visit the UN Women website or follow us on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Instagram.
