16 days to make girls hear: join our online seminar
29 October 2011
Each year, from 25 November to 10 December, women’s organizations, advocates and activists around the world join together for the “16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence Campaign”. This campaign links the International Day Against Violence Against Women on 25 November with International Human Rights Day on 10 December.
This year the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts is asking members across the world to take action to ”Make girls heard” as part of its “Stop the violence. Speak out for girls’ rights” campaign. Every day, from 25 November 2011 to 10 December 2011, we will feature different actions being taken by Girl Guides and Girl Scouts globally to “Stop the violence and speak out for girls’ rights.”

On 30 November, at 15:00 GMT, we will be showing the documentary “The Hidden Truth” online. Made by a young woman in Zambia, the film tackles the issue of domestic violence and is being used as a tool for social change in local communities in Zambia.
The webinar (online seminar) will give you the opportunity to watch the film and then take part in Q&A session with the filmmaker Penelope. Penelope will talk about how she made the film and why it was so important for her to speak out against domestic violence. There will then be an opportunity to ask her questions and to download our worksheet on making films for change.
After the webinar you can use the information and downloadable worksheet to make your own short film on ending violence. You can send these films to us. We’ll show the best ones on our website and send you a special “Stop the violence” promotional pack including pin badges, wrist bracelets, t-shirts and stickers.
