16 Days of Action
The 16 Days of Action against Gender-based Violence is the longest running campaign for women’s rights across the world. It starts on 25 November, which is the UN International Day of Elimination of Violence against Women, and ends on 10 December, which is Human Rights Day. The campaign runs across these 16 Days to make it clear that violence against women and girls is an abuse of human rights.
Haringey Council is committed to ending violence against women and girls, so that all of our residents can lead safe, healthy and fulfilling lives. Each year, we celebrate the 16 Days of Action by marking each day with a different activity, training opportunity, workshop or partner event. The 16 Days of Action is a great opportunity to celebrate our partner services who do amazing work to support gender equality. We know that working in partnership is the only effective way to end violence against women and girls.
