The 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence is an international campaign to galvanise action to end violence against women and girls across the world. Annually, the campaign runs from 25 November, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, to 10 December, which is Human Rights Day. Currently, more than 3,700 organisations from over 160 countries participate in the campaign each year.
25 November is also White Ribbon Day, the world’s largest movement of men and boys working to end men’s violence against women and girls, promote gender equality, healthy relationships and a new vision of masculinity.
16 Days in WA to Stop Violence Against Women is Western Australia’s contribution to these efforts.
Through the campaign, we aim to raise awareness (Educate); increase positive actions (Motivate); and highlight those agencies and organisations which are currently working hard to oppose violence against women (Advocate).

Below is AFLS contribution to raise awareness for this worthy cause.
