To mark the 30th anniversary of the Global #16Days Campaign this year, we’re launching our #16Days16WaysAgainstGBV Campaign on November 25, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women.
In 2020, 160 women and girls were killed by violence in Canada. Indigenous women and girls are 12 times more likely to be murdered or missing than any other women in Canada (Canadian Women’s Foundation.)
Gender-based violence (GBV), family violence (FV) and intimate partner violence (IPV) are all urgent human rights and public health crises that affects us all.
Stay tuned as we share some everyday things that each of us can do to raise awareness of gender-based violence, support survivors, and help #EndGBV. A violence-free world is possible. Let’s work together to make it happen.
