Offer: 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence --- 2010 'Take Action Kit' now available (eng, fr, & esp)
The Center for Women's Global Leadership (CWGL) recently published the 2010 'Take Action Kit' for the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence Campaign. In case you are not already familiar, the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence is an international campaign sponsored by CWGL. The campaign spans from November 25th (International Day Against Violence Against Women) to December 10th (International Human Rights Day) in order to symbolically link violence against women and human rights and to emphasize that such violence is a violation of human rights. Since 1991, over 2,000 organizations in approximately 156 countries have participated in the 16 Days Campaign.
The theme for this year's campaign is: "Structures of Violence: Defining the Intersections of Militarism and Violence Against Women.”
