The United Nation’s international campaign 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence, takes place each year from 25 November (International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women) until 10 December (International Human Rights Day).  

Domestic Violence Victoria and the Domestic Violence Resource Centre Victoria (DV Vic/DVRCV) are partnering with Respect Victoria for the upcoming 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence. Following positive reception for the campaign messaging in 2020, this year’s theme will be Respect Women: Call It Out (Respect Is).
