The 16-day activism against gender-based violence

May 15, 2020 - May 31, 2020

“The 16-day activism against gender-based violence” is a global movement that calls for the elimination of all forms of violence against women. People get the opportunity to unite their efforts against gender-based violence during the events organized from November 25th  to December 10th. The campaign is getting new breath year after year and much more people become the voice in the struggle against women violence. The campaign aims to reduce the violence against women and girls all over the world, to call for women rights and make their voice be heard. During those 16 days the activists, scholars and political figures get together to struggle against gender-based violence and to help everyone to have equal educational opportunities, at the same time defending women rights. This year the educational issue is more essential. The problem is what consequences the gender-based violence may have on getting equal educational opportunities especially for those who have different identities and are more marginalized.
