This is a place to share what you are doing to mark these 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence.
November 25 marks the beginning of the global campaign for 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence (GBV). GBV continues to be one of the most prevalent and socially accepted categories of human rights violations. In conflict and post-conflict regions around the world, girls and women are particularly vulnerable. Girls and women need a safe space to address the trauma endured during and after conflict; sport is providing that space. Sport has proven to be an effective strategy in challenging GBV in conflict regions such as Rwanda, Sierra Leone, Liberia, and Colombia.
As part of Women Win’s campaign to address GBV through sport, we have recently launched two new resources; a special chapter specific to conflict regions, and a powerful video highlighting the role of sport among survivors of GBV in conflict regions. We encourage you to explore these at GirlSportGuides.org/Conflict where you will learn more about how sport is helping survivors of GBV heal, connect and rebuild.
Women Win invites you to join us in 16 Days of Activism by sharing these resources with your community to raise awareness and encourage action in promoting sport as a platform for addressing GBV in conflict and post-conflict regions.
