See here for some of the inspirational ways in which Anglicans were involved with the ‘16 Days of Activism’ during 2015 .
The Episcopal Anglican Church in Brazil ran a series of articles for the 16 Days (in Portuguese). Mauricio Andrade, Bishop of the Diocese of Brasília, recorded a video message.
The Anglican Church of Burundi recorded a drama on tackling gender-based violence for radio broadcast and public performances; hosted a national forum on promoting women’s involvement in leadership and decision-making bodies to work against gender-based violence; held a road show on ending GBV and HIV/Aids and offered voluntary HIV testing; and organised public marches to raise awareness.
In this TV campaign, Fijian faith leaders take a stand against rape and violence against women and children.
The IAWN/Anglican Alliance webinar took place on 1 December 2016. Register and watch a recording of the webinar here.
Loving one another: A biblical discussion toolkit on gender-based violence. The Scottish Episcopal Church and Christian Aid have collaborated to produce this resource based on material tried and tested by the Anglican Church in Brazil (Igreja Episcopal Anglicana do Brasil).
The resource exposes the spectrum of violence faced by women and girls and seeks transformation that goes to the heart of our faith.

Gender-based violence is a sin: In this 60-second commercial shown on TV and in cinemas in Fiji, the Anglican Archbishop of Polynesia joins other church leaders to name gender-based violence as a sin.
