What we covered

Gender-based violence is a pervasive issue that affects individuals in all walks of life. From physical abuse and sexual assault to emotional manipulation and economic coercion, it takes many forms and impacts countless lives. In response to this pressing concern, the 16 Days of Activism campaign has emerged as a global initiative to raise awareness and combat gender-based violence.

Understanding the 16 Days of Activism

Running from November 25th, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, to December 10th, International Human Rights Day, the 16 Days of Activism campaign seeks to shed light on the prevalence of gender-based violence and advocate for its eradication. This period serves as a platform for individuals, communities, and organizations to come together in solidarity and take a stand against all forms of violence perpetuated on the basis of gender.

The Impact of Gender-Based Violence in the Workplace

The effects of gender-based violence extend beyond individual experiences, permeating into the fabric of workplaces around the world. Employees who are survivors of such violence may struggle with decreased productivity, heightened anxiety, and a diminished sense of safety and well-being. Recognizing and addressing this issue is pivotal not only for the affected individuals but also for creating supportive, inclusive work environments.

Participating in 16 Days of Activism

There are numerous ways in which individuals and organizations can contribute to the 16 Days of Activism campaign. These include:

  • Educating and informing others about the prevalence and impact of gender-based violence.
  • Organizing and participating in workshops, panel discussions, or training sessions focused on preventing and addressing gender-based violence in the workplace.
  • Providing support and resources to employees who may be experiencing or have experienced gender-based violence.
  • Creating a workplace culture that fosters respect, equality, and zero tolerance for all forms of violence and discrimination.
