16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence

Updated: Jan 12

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. It was started by activists at the inaugural Women’s Global Leadership Institute in 1991 and continues to be coordinated each year by the Center for Women’s Global Leadership. It is used as an organising strategy by individuals and organisations around the world to call for the prevention and elimination of violence against women and girls.


RVWRMP also participated in this campaign. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, rural municipalities were given a leading role in conducting the campaign with precautionary measures. During the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been an increase in gender-based violence reported globally, as well as Nepal, linked to increased social and economic stress. Hence, it was particularly important this year to spread the message that violence is never an appropriate response. Thanks to close collaboration with the RM's, the campaign was undertaken successfully.


This year the campaign was celebrated with global, national and project themes in the RVWRMP working area. See below video for key messages and images from the campaign.
