Members of Soroptimist International all over the world highlight the 16 days of Activism against Gender-based Violence Campaign which spans from the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women on 25 November until Human Rights Day on 10 December; an annual campaign against gender-based violence. This is a time to galvanize action to end violence against women and girls around the world, when a whole lot of people come together and speak out on one topic: ending violence against women and girls. In the streets, in schools, offices, villages and cities, every year, people around the world raise awareness and take action during the 16 Days of Activism including the Perth & Kinross Violence Against Women’s Partnership’s programme of events.
