The 16 Days of Activism: No Violence Against Womenwhite awareness ribbon

The 16 Days of Activism: No Violence Against Women is a United Nations campaign. It takes place annually between 25 November (International Day of No Violence Against Women) to 10 December (International Human Rights Day). The South African Government runs a parallel campaign that includes issues relating to violence against children. This campaign focuses primarily on generating an increased awareness of the negative impact of violence on women and children.

 

What can you do?

Support the campaign by wearing the white ribbon during the 16-day period:

A white ribbon is a symbol of peace and symbolizes the commitment of the wearer to never commit or condone violence against women and children.

 

Participate in the various 16 Days of Activism events and activities

A calendar outlining events taking place around the country over the period of the 16 days will be made available.

 

Volunteer in support of NGOs and community groups who support abused women and children

Many organisations need assistance from the public. You can volunteer your time and make a contribution to the work of institutions. Help plant a garden at a shelter, sponsor plastic tables and chairs for kids at a clinic or join an organisation as a counselor. Use your skills and knowledge to help the victims of abuse.

 

Join community policing forums

The community and the local police stations are active partners in ensuring local safety and security. The goal is to bring about effective crime prevention by launching intelligence-driven crime-prevention projects in partnership with the local community. You may want to also become a reservist, a member of the community who volunteers his/her services and time to support local policing efforts to fight crime. For more information on how to join, contact your local police station.

 

Seek help if you are emotionally, physically or sexually abusive to your partner and/or children. Call the Gender Based Violence helpline (0800 150 150).

 

Talk to friends, relatives and colleagues to take a stand against abuse of women and children.

 

Try and understand how your own attitudes and actions might perpetuate sexism and violence.
