16 Days of Activism
In 2017, we're using 16 Days of Activism to highlight the places that girls feel unsafe.
25 November – 10 December is 16 Days of Activism
Girls are uniquely vulnerable to acts of violence because of their age and gender, yet reliable data on the scale and nature of this is very limited. In order to advocate for protection and prevention, it is critical that we identify the places where girls are most at risk of being exposed to violence. To mark 16 Days of Activism, we’re asking girls to draw pictures of the spaces and places where they feel most unsafe in their everyday lives. We want to start collecting these drawings now, to share throughout 16 Days.Up to 50% of sexual assaults are committed against girls under 16. Because of their age and gender, girls are uniquely vulnerable.
