We advocate with and alongside those traditionally excluded from decision-making. We believe in speaking truth to power and in using your voice as a form of resistance. We advocate to interrupt the status quo and to engage in strategic change.
Our meetings include those to influence governments, employers, unions, INGOs and special rapporteurs at the human rights council.
Our advocacy takes place:
The theme of the 2018 & 2019 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence Campaign is “End Gender-Based Violence in the World of Work.” This theme builds on the momentum and achievements during the 2017 campaign, when over 700 organizations in 92 countries campaigned around the theme of “Together We Can End GBV in Education.” Our goal is to continue to target the institutions in which gender-based violence is perpetuated and push for systemic change and accountability.
We provide technical assistance to cites passing legislation on CEDAW and other international instruments.
