16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence campaign

How Violence against women and girls is not a cultural but a criminal act?

This year’s theme was “UNiTE! Activism to end violence against women and girls”. Against the Pushback, We #PushForward | 16 Days 2022 Is femicide data, the tip of the iceberg? According to a study, of the estimated number of 81,100 women and girls killed intentionally in 2021 worldwide, 45,000 (55%) were killed by intimate partners or other family members.
