The 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence is an annual international campaign that kicks off on 25 November, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, and runs until 10 December, Human Rights Day.
The campaign highlights the importance of calling out disrespectful behaviour and attitudes that lead to domestic violence. Statistics show that every 9 days a woman is killed by her current or former partner, and almost 1 in 4 women have experienced intimate partner violence by the age of 15, reinforcing how prevalent gender-based violence is within our society.
If you or someone you know is experiencing violence or abuse, you can contact 1800RESPECT on 1800 737 732 or in an emergency situation please call 000 for urgent police assistance.
