16 Days of Activism

The 16 Days of Activism is from the 25th November to the 10th December.

Gender-based violence is a violation of human rights. The theme for this year’s ’16 Days of Activism’ is the same as last year: ‘Respect Women: Call it Out’.

Gender-based violence continues to grow at alarming rates:
  • In Australia, one in six women have experienced physical and/or sexual violence by a current or former partner
  • Gender-based violence is the cause of one police call out every two minutes
  • On average, one woman is murdered per week by a current or former partner
  • It’s estimated that gender-based violence costs the Australian economy $22 billion each year.
  • (Australian Institute of Health and Welfare, 2019; Australian Broadcasting Corporation, 2016)
