16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence
The 16 Days of Activism is a global campaign against crimes on women and girls. This campaign includes fund-raising events to support the victims of gender-based violence and to spread awareness regarding gender-based abuse.
It is an event to support the rights of women around the globe and to spread the message that they deserve equal opportunities and freedom as men.
This campaign was started in 1991 by the Centre for Women’s Global Leadership and has since grown in scale and is currently observed by organisations around the globe. Gender-based violence is so deeply embedded in our society that it is a problem of international proportions. The victims of these crimes are not restricted to the women in the underdeveloped parts of the world and educated women from the developed cities and urban areas are also affected by them. Not just women, even young girls are subjected to violence at the hands of strangers as well as their own family members, often on a daily basis.
This assumption that women constitute the weaker sex, and need to be subdued or subjected to violence needs to be eliminated from the society. It is appalling that even though women have proven their calibre in every field that was previously believed to be too difficult for the fairer sex, they are still considered to be lesser individuals by those who subject them to domestic violence and sexual abuse.
If you too believe that it is high time that these horrible gender-based crimes need to stop then participate in this campaign to educate the world against these gruesome acts of violence.
