16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence

From Nov. 25 (International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women) to Dec. 10 (Human Rights Day), CARE Action is taking part in this global campaign with the mission of eradicating all forms of gender-based violence everywhere. We’re urging action through the International Violence Against Women Act, which would strengthen U.S. leadership and empower women and girls in the fight against gender-based violence.
