2022 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence

The 16 Days of Activism begins each year on the 25 November, the international Day for the Elimination of All Forms of Violence Against Women, until Human Rights Day on December 10th. This year the international focus is on Ending Femicide. Femicide is killing women or girls simply because they are female. 238 women were killed daily in 2017. This is only likely to have increased during lockdown and stay at home notices during the COVID-19 pandemic.  

The International Anglican Women's Network (IAWN) and, the Director for Gender Justice, would like to hear about your plans for this year's 16 Days of Activism. Will you join in with Thursdays in Black? Will you host an empty red chair to symbolise women who are no longer here? Will you be using the new resource God's Justice: Theology and GBV (available in four languages) or the Domestic Abuse and COVID-19 resource available in nine languages?  

Please get in touch and let us know your plans. Email: [email protected]
