Preventing Violence Against Women is Everybody’s Business: Let’s Call it Out Everywhere Loddon Mallee

Get Involved – 16 Days of Activism 2022

16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence is coming soon, and Women’s Health Loddon Mallee is encouraging everybody to get involved this year. We’ve developed a 16 Days Toolkit and a set of downloadable campaign resources (see below) to assist you to get prepared and start planning for activities with your communities.

About 16 Days of Activism

16 Days is a global campaign established by the United Nations to raise awareness and encourage communities to take action to end violence against women. The annual campaign begins on 25 November, the International Day of Elimination of Violence Against Women, and ends on 10 December, which is International Human Rights Day.

About the Theme

Women’s Health Loddon Mallee have established the regional campaign theme for 2022 as: “Preventing Violence Against Women is Everybody’s Business: Let’s Call it Out Everywhere Loddon Mallee”.

Ending violence against women starts with calling out gender inequality, sexism, harassment and abuse when we see it. By calling it out we can all start to make a difference in challenging the attitudes and behaviours that drive gendered violence.

Ending violence against women is everybody’s business. We all have a responsibility to call out the gendered drivers of violence everywhere, including in media, in politics, online, in our homes and workplaces, in our relationships, on the street, in our schools, TAFEs and universities, and in our faith settings. Everyone deserves to be able to participate in community and family life without fear of gendered harassment, violence or abuse.

16 Day of Activism Toolkit

The 16 Days of Activism Toolkit has been created to assist organisations and communities in the Loddon Mallee Region to participate in and lead their own events and activities as part of the international 16 Days of Activism campaign, 25 November – 10 December.
