16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence is an international campaign starting on 25 November, the International Day to End Violence against Women. The members of the Gender Equality Working Group and the Project on Violence Against Women discussed ways in which Equinet could be involved in this initative. The members decided to launch a social media campaign that will highlight good practices from different equality bodies on ways to tackle violence against women.
On 26 November, the first example was published highlighting an initiative by the Ombudsperson for Gender Equality of the Republic of Croatia. The campaign will be ongoing from 25 November to 10 December and the examples will be published by Equinet on social media. We strongly encourage all of you to share these stories and use the material to spread the word about the important work of equaity bodies across Europe on this particular topic.
