16 Days of Action Against Gender-Based Violence (25/11/23 – 10/12/23)

3rd November 2023

The 16 days between 25 November, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, and 10 December, Human Rights Day, are known as the 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence Campaign, a time to galvanize action to end violence against women and girls around the world (UNESCO).

This international campaign aims tackle domestic abuse and raise awareness. Domestic violence and abuse disproportionately impacts women and girls and marginalised communities, therefore, this campaign seeks to address such issues as equality.   

Why are well telling you about this? 

Apart from raising awareness of this campaign. The Soroptimists have hired a space in The Avenue in Bournemouth Town Centre and invited Dr Olanda Harvey and Dr Louise Oliver to show case some of Bournemouth University’s research focusing on Domestic Abuse but also to conduct research. The exhibition will be open until 30th Nov. 

We have put up a Problem Tree and Solution Tree for members of the public to write their views on about Violence Against Women and Girls. The Problem and Solutions Trees are a useful approach for this type of research because it is a visual method, in which one tree looks at the current challenges faced and the other looks at what could be done. 

The Bournemouth Arts College also have some really interesting and hard-hitting artwork on the theme of VAWG, and the public are being invited to vote for their favourite. 

Finally, the Soroptomists are running other events this week, for more information follow this link.

If you are in Bournemouth over the next week, please do join in.

Where to find the event: Bournemouth Town Centre, upstairs in the arcade about the Works and HMV.
