Call For Participation/Input: Center For Women's Global Leadership (CWGL): 16 Days Campaign: Only 3 Weeks Away!

The 21st annual 16 Days Campaign will be kicking off in a few weeks. You can see that CWGL already has events posted from around the world on the Campaign Calendar, but your help is needed to fill the calendar. Submitting an event to the calendar is a great way to spread the word about your work and be recognized as a participating organization!

Tell CWGL how you're going to be part of the movement - whether it's holding a vigil, writing a blog or news article, hosting a radio show, screening a film, campaigning on the street, holding awareness-raising programs, or talking to friends about the issue… every action contributes toward making the world a safer place for women and girls!

What Does “Security” Mean To You?
http://16dayscwgl.rutgers.edu/2011-campaign/qwhat-is-securityq-submissions

Often when we hear about security, it is in terms of the State: military, police, private armies or other “security sector” agents. Do these armed forces really make us feel safer? How does violence in our community or home affect our overall security as women? What does human security mean to you? Leading up to this year’s 16 Days Campaign, “From Peace in the Home to Peace in the World,” we are trying to define what security means to all of us. Join us in redefining security from the ground up! Submit your thoughts or create a 30-second YouTube video and send us the link. CWGL will be sharing your ideas and testimonies on the 16 Days website. Your submissions will help guide our advocacy on state spending priorities.

To help spread the word about 16 Day Campaign activities happening around the world, you can submit your plans to CWGL's online Campaign Calendar. CWGL asks that you submit just one entry that lists all of your plans during the campaign, rather than submitting a separate event form for each activity. You can also upload several documents that explain your events. The calendar is searchable by region and country. Submit your information today and spread the word!!
