16 days of Action Opposing Violence Against Women

The 16 Days Campaign is an international campaign started in 1991 by the centre for women’s global leadership in New Jersey. It begins on the 25th November (International Day Opposing Violence Against Women) and runs until the 10th December (International Human Rights Day)

The aims of the campaign are to highlight the prevalence of domestic abuse against women and to raise awareness of the issue as a human rights issue at local, national, and international level. The campaign also aims to show the solidarity of women around the world and works towards the elimination of all forms of violence against women.


White Ribbon Campaign

The White Ribbon Campaign (WRC) is the largest movement in the world of men working to end men’s violence against women. This campaign was created by a group of Canadian men in 1991 on the second anniversary a massacre of 14 women in Montreal. They decided that wearing a white ribbon would be a symbol of men’s opposition to male violence against women. After only six weeks preparation, as many as 100,000 men across Canada wore a white ribbon and many others have been drawn into discussion and debate on the issue of men’s violence. There are now campaigns in many countries internationally. In 2010 ADAPT highlighted the White Ribbon Campaign with some well known sports personalities and continues to support this campaign every year.
