The Center for Women’s Global Leadership released the Take Action Kit to mark the 21st annual 16 Days Activism Against Gender Violence Campaign. The toolkit empowers participants and activists to fight violence against women at home and outside.

Take Action Kit for 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence Campaign, 2011


The Center for Women’s Global Leadership (CWGL) released the toolkit for the 21st annual 16 Days Activism. This year’s theme "From Peace in the Home to Peace in the World," seeks to highlight the connections between violence against women and militarism at all levels - from the domestic sphere to conflict. It also emphasises that our peaceful, non-violent actions and attitudes “at home” in our local communities can extend outward and influence peace in the world.

Building upon the information gathered from participants during the 2010 campaign, this year’s 16 Days Campaign will delve further into five issues:

1) The proliferation of small arms and their role in domestic violence

2) Sexual and gender-based violence by state agents

3) Political violence against women

4) Sexual violence in conflict situations

5) Bridging women’s rights, human rights and peace movements to challenge militarism.

The main interactive project for the 2011 campaign asks participants around the world to share their visions of “security,” and can submit their thoughts in video or written form through the 16 Days website!

Militarism is a difficult issue to discuss; not only is it a complicated topic involving deep power and financial structures, it can also be a dangerous word to use in some places. CEGL encourages adapting the Take Action Kit materials so that they are relevant for the local work of activists.
