16 Days of Activism Against Gender‑Based Violence

In 1991, the Center for Women’s Global Leadership at Rutgers University initiated an annual international campaign that is dedicated to ending gender-based violence, and that has since run every year, with support from the United Nations and with growing participation from hundreds of organizations around the world.

Human Rights & Equity Services and South House Sexual and Gender Resource Centre are teaming up for the third annual 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence Campaign. We have collaborated with various faculties, organizations, services, departments, centres, offices, and programs on campus and in the surrounding Halifax community to host and deliver, over a 16-day period, a series of events, campaigns, and/or activities committed to profiling, addressing and eradicating all forms of sex- and gender-based violence.

The campaign is exactly as it sounds: it runs for the 16-day period between November 25 (the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women) through to December 10 (International Human Rights Day).
