Tomorrow, November 25, 2023, on the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women and Girls, we stand united against gender-based violence. The International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women will mark the launch of the UNiTE campaign (Nov 25- Dec 10) — an initiative of 16 days of activism concluding on the day that commemorates International Human Rights Day (10 December).
The global theme of this year’s 16 Days of Activism against Gender-based Violence, which runs from 25 November to 10 December 2023, is “UNITE! Invest to prevent violence against women and girls” – download the infographic on this year’s theme.
This 2023 campaign Invest to Prevent Violence against Women & Girls will call on citizens to show how much they care about ending violence against women and girls and call on governments worldwide to share how they are investing in gender-based violence prevention. Join the global movement with the #NoExcuse slogan calling for urgent investments to prevent violence against women and girls. Dig deeper into the campaign’s proposals –data, prevention, investments– and join the global movement with the #NoExcuse slogan to eliminate violence against women and girls.
In conjunction with this important day, we are proud to organize next week’s Expert Meeting on Domestic Violence and Sex Offenders, alongside the second edition of the Workshop on Gender-Based Violence. We believe in the power of collaboration and dialogue to address these critical issues.
Let’s work towards a world free from gender-based violence.
