Facebook's 2020 campaign around the 16 Days of Activism to End Gender-Based Violence
December 11, 2020
The 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence activities, from 25 November to 10 December, took place under our 2020 global theme: "Orange the World. Pascale Franck worked together with Facebook and the European Women’s Lobby in the online campaigning in her role of Representative of Soroptimist International of Europe at European Women's Lobby and Vice-president European Family Justice Centers Alliance.
"We need to raise the voice of women who are in difficulties because of violence and because of the lack of policy to make a difference for them. But advocacy is one thing, we also need to take action by raising the number of shelters and the number of places women can go to to find help.”
The 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence is an annual international campaign. It was started by activists at the inaugural Women’s Global Leadership Institute in 1991 and continues to be coordinated each year by the Center for Women’s Global Leadership. It is used as an organizing strategy by individuals and organizations around the world to call for the prevention and elimination of violence against women and girls.
