#Hear Me Too – 16 Day Campaign

During the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence (an annual global campaign from 25 November to 10 December) efforts made together (locally and globally)  will broaden that conversation, and highlight the voices and activism of survivors of violence and advocates around the world. It will showcase their stories, and their solutions.

A commemoration event at the UN on 19th November kicked off the global campaign under the umbrella of the UN Secretary-General’s campaign, UNiTE to End Violence against Women.  For each of the 16 Days (as in previous years) there is a particular action theme with resource leaflets available  for each one (see links below).  The global  campaign features the stories of some of the brave women and men who are paving the way for a safer, more equal and better world for all.  Join them as they say #HearMeToo.

Resource Links to download for each day

The 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence Campaign began on 25 November 2018, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, and concludes on 10 December 2018, Human Rights Day.

This Campaign opposing violence against women, is an important opportunity to raise awareness and call for changes at an international, national and local level to make women and children safe from abuse.

In recent years, the voices of survivors and activists, through campaigns such as #MeToo, have reached a crescendo that cannot be silenced anymore. Advocates understand that while the names and contexts may differ across geographical locations, women and girls everywhere are experiencing extensive abuse and their stories need to be brought to light.
