Kitchen Table Conversations

One simple way that individuals can get involved in 16 Days activities is to encourage and facilitate conversation. Conversations around gender-based violence and gender equity are important for shifting attitudes, beliefs and behaviours.

These conversation starters have been developed to assist you to start an informal conversation with colleagues, family, friends, and community members about gender-based violence, sexism, and disrespect towards women.

Conversations can be challenging and may bring up a range of difficult issues and emotions for people. Consider this before you start a conversation and make sure you feel safe, supported, and prepared.
