Welcome to #16daysUW

Each year, organizations, governments, and groups worldwide, participate in 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-based Violence to remind all citizens that they can take actions in their everyday lives to stop gender-based violence.

16 Days begins on November 25 with the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, and concludes on December 10, International Human Rights Day. In Canada, 16 Days includes the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women on December 6.
