The 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence

Get Ready for the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence and the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence against Women

The 16 Days of Activism against Gender Violence (November 25-December 10) and the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence against Women (December 6) provide an opportunity to reflect on violence against women and girls and to take action to end it.

Violence against women and girls — it is your business

It is no secret that women and girls continue to be more vulnerable to violence than men. Aboriginal women are even more at risk, being three times more likely than non-Aboriginal women to experience violence.    

This is not just a women’s issue — it’s everyone’s issue and we all have an important role to play. Looking the other way is not an option.

Take the pledge

The Government of Canada is inviting all Canadians to take the pledge to end violence against women as part of the #EndViolence campaign.

By taking the pledge, Canadians can show their commitment to making Canada safer for all women and girls, no matter who they are or where they live.

What will you do?

To help spread the word about this campaign and to raise awareness of gender-based violence, Status of Women Canada will release a series of infobites that you can share on social media throughout the 16 Days.

Visit women.gc.ca for more ways to commemorate the 16 Days and help #EndViolence against women and girls.

Be part of the solution

We can all be part of the solution to ending violence against women and girls. Together, our actions can help make Canada safer, more respectful and supportive – not just for women and girls – but for all Canadians.
