16 DAYS OF ACTIVISM
The 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence is an annual international campaign that runs on 25 November (the International Day against Violence against Women), and to 10 December (International Human Rights Day).
The campaign started by the Center for Women’s Global Leadership (CWGL) in 1991 and continues to be coordinated each year by them. This solidarity initiative is a strategy by individuals and organizations around the world to call for the prevention and elimination of violence against girls and women.
For this year’s campaign, the Ribbon Rouge Foundation’s goal is to raise $2000 and is proud to be collaborating with the following 13 artists to achieve this and commemorate these 16 days. Below is a list of days of activism, what the day stands for, and the artist/art represented for that day.
