Activism Against Gender Based Violence

November 24, 2017

The period from 25 November to 10 December 2017 is being recognised internationally as the ‘16 Days of Activism Against Gender Based Violence’. During these two weeks, Christian Aid is co-ordinating a global social media campaign to end gender based violence with the aim of raising the profile of their work with faith leaders and people from faith communities in the UK, Burundi, Nigeria, and Latin America.

Faith leaders have a key role in shaping the way that gender is understood, experienced and lived out across the world. For this reason, from 25 November to 10 December, Christian Aid Scotland will share pledges from faith leaders and faith community activists from across Scotland. You can follow the campaign by visiting the Christian Aid twitter accounts @christianaidsco and @ca_global, and Christian Aid’s Facebook page, where photographs and pledges will be shared using the hashtag #endGBV,
