16 Days of Activism

Men and womenViolence against Women

The ‘16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence’ Campaign runs from 25 November, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, to 10 December, Human Rights Day. This campaign aims to focus attention and inspire action to end violence against women and girls around the world. 

Tearfund is taking part as a member of We Will Speak Out (WWSO), an international coalition of Christian-based organisations committed to empowering women and girls and transforming relationships between women and men. 

WWSO has created this prayer guide to help individuals and groups to pray into the issues of gender-based violence. Here you will find stories and ideas illustrating how Tearfund and our partners have impacted the lives of women, men, boys and girls on highly sensitive issues such as domestic violence, child protection and sexual violence.

Please join us as we raise our voices, both in prayer and in challenging the silence that too often surrounds these issues.
