Today we stand on the threshold of the period during the year that we redouble our efforts to combat gender-based violence.
I am referring to the “16 days of activism against gender violence campaign,” which has occurred from November 25 through December 10 every year since 1991.
These 16 days are bookmarked by two key dates:
November 25 is the International Day against Violence against women;
and December 10 is International Human Rights Day.
