Guides against violence

Each year, from November 25 to December 10, women’s organisations, advocates and activists around the world join together for the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence Campaign. This campaign links the International Day Against Violence Against Women on November 25 with International Human Rights Day on December 10.

This year the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts is asking members across the world to take action to “create safe spaces”. As part of the Stop the Violence – Speak out for girls’ rights campaign, we want members to identify a space and make it free from violence and the fear of violence.

WAGGGS invites everyone to take action during the 16 Days. WAGGGS has created resources that you can use to help create your safe space during 16 Days.

Action Sheet – The16 Days action sheet outlines the two key steps you need to create safe spaces.
