Women Empowerment leading to Gender Equality

16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence

16 Days of Activism Against Gender-based Violence is an international campaign to challenge violence against women and girls.  The campaign runs every year from 25 November, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, to 10 December, the Human Rights Day. It was initiated in 1991 by the first Women’s Global Leadership Institute, held by the Center for Women’s Global leadership (CWGL) at Rutgers University. This Activism celebrates for 16 days in Bangladesh with different countries of the world.

On the occasion of the day, the United Nations said that despite the COVID-19 situation, various forms of violence against women and girls, especially domestic violence, continue to occur in different countries. Even in the midst of the COVID crisis, this shadow of violence continues to grow. The world must work together to stop this violence. This year’s theme is “Make the World Orange: Funds, Response, Prevention, and Collection!” This documentary has been developed for supporting this Activism.
