Why 16 days

The annual international campaign 16 Days of Activism for No Violence against Women and Children started on Sunday 25 November.

The Western Cape Government actively endorses the campaign which aims to raise awareness of the negative impact that violence and abuse have on women and children.

According to the government the campaign is important to uphold fundamental human rights as set out by the South African Constitution. Its efforts had been going on for years and 16 Days of Activism was first introduced in 1991 by the Women’s Global Leadership Institute.

On its website, the Western Cape Government states “gender-based violence, in all its different forms, devalues human dignity and the self-worth of the abused person and must be stopped in our society”.

It also states “the campaign can only succeed if we stand together to safeguard our society against this cycle of abuse”.

South Africa is one of more than 3 700 organisations in about 164 countries which participates in the campaign annually.
