November 25th has been designated by the United Nations as the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women. The accompanying 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence (November 25- December 10) focus on raising awareness of gender-based violence (GBV) prevention and response efforts. On Tuesday, December 10th, the U.S. Department of State will hold a virtual program on “16 Days of Activism: Preventing Gender-Based Violence.” The hour-long program will discuss how both civil society and government representatives can work to prevent and respond to gender-based violence while also showcasing the work of women and men working to end GBV in many different regions of the world.
