It begins each year on the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women and runs until Human Rights Day.
The aim is to call for the prevention and elimination of violence against women and girls.
The global theme for this year’s 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence, which will run from 25 November to 10 December 2023, is “UNITE! Invest to prevent violence against women and girls.”
