Violence against women and girls is one of the most widespread problems in the world, manifested in various forms, including femicide, domestic violence and sexual harassment, as well as discrimination due to existing stereotypes.
16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence is a worldwide campaign to raise awareness of gender-based violence and women’s rights. The campaign runs every year from November 25, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, to December 10.
