The 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence

Posted by Justice Nkoana on November 29, 2010 at 9:11 AM
16 Days of Activism: Unite Against Women and Child Abuse




The 16 Days of Activism: No Violence Against Women is a United Nations campaign. It takes place annually between 25 November (International Day of No Violence Against Women) to 10 December (International Human Rights Day). The South African Government runs a parallel campaign that includes issues relating to violence against children. This campaign focuses primarily on generating an increased awareness of the negative impact of violence on women and children.


In 2006 the government also started a '365 Days of Activism' initiative to enhance the annual 16 Days campaign. The 365 Day of Activism initiative shows how commitments made to fight the abuse of women and children are acted on throughout the year.

The Department of Provincial and Local Government works closely with the Presidency and other government departments to run the 16 Days of Activism campaign. In addition, strategic partnerships between government, civil society and business, have been established to broaden the potential impact of the campaign.


Imagine if, for 16 days, there were no rape, no child abuse, no sexual harassment, no emotional abuse. The 16 Days of Activism campaign challenges South Africans to declare a truce on violence against women and children - and, ultimately, to make it a permanent one.


Around the country, South Africans are being called on to combat violence against women and children. For the eighth year, SA is taking part in the global 16 Days of Activism for No Violence Against Women campaign, which runs from 25 November (International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women) through to International Human Rights Day on December 10.


Although the global campaign focuses on violence against women only, South Africa added children to its campaign because of the high incidence of child abuse in the country.South Africa is still home to high levels of violence against its women and children, despite a world-renowned Constitution and a legislative overhaul that safeguard women's rights.
