16 Days: Day 1

The 16 Days of Activism is an international  campaign, which has been used as an organizing strategy by groups and individuals around the world who are calling for an end to violence against women.  The campaign is detailed here. The campaign begins today because November 25 is the UN International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women (resources here).

HRinI is going to mark the 16 days campaign by posting links to one campaign or issue touching on violence against women every day for the duration of the 16 days.

Today we are featuring the Irish Women’s Aid 16 Days Campaign, which you can find out about here. The theme for 2009 is ‘Breaking the Silence’.

Update: Details of Banúlacht’s conference to mark the 16 Days of Action, which will take place in Limerick tomorrow, are here.
