16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence
Mothers’ Union’s resources for this years 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence are now available on our website, and can be accessed at:http://www.themothersunion.org/content/16-days-activism-2017
Mothers’ Union engages each year with the global 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence, which runs from 25th November (the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women) to 10th December (International Human Rights Day), raising awareness of and campaigning for an end to, violence against women and girls.
This year, Mothers’ Union is focussing on the issue of stigma, where communities and society respond negatively to, or by blaming those who are, victims of gender-based violence, and the need to address this by talking openly about the realities of gender-based violence, and combating harmful myths.
Mothers’ Union is calling on people everywhere to: break the silence surrounding gender-based violence, lift the shame which is often placed unfairly on survivors, and shift the blame from victim to perpetrator.
The theme for 2018 is
‘In Mary Sumner’s footsteps’
New resources are available to download on our Branch Resources
