#16 Days of Activism
This year, the Norwegian Helsinki Committee uses the international campaign #16DaysOfActivismAgainstGenderBasedViolence to promote the work of some of the women human rights defenders that amaze us, and who have found their own way of making the world more equal, one person at the time.
One out of three women experience violence in their life-time. This is a pandemic can be prevented. Around the world you will find initiatives set up by women, for women – to provide safety for women and girls, advocate for women’s rights and equal participation in socitey, and tackle the particular challenges women and girls face during war and conflict💪
