2009 theme for 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence Campaign

From the  Center for Women’s Global Leadership (CWGL):

In celebration of the 60th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) during last year’s 16 Days Campaign, millions of people pledged their support for ending violence against women (VAW) and upholding human rights. Building upon this momentum, the Center for Women’s Global Leadership (CWGL) dedicates the 2009 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence Campaign to honoring groups and individuals who have committed to bringing VAW to the forefront of global attention, to encouraging everyone in their various capacities to take action to end VAW, and to demanding accountability for all of the promises made to eliminate VAW. The 2009 theme is: Commit – Act – Demand: We CAN End Violence Against Women! For details, click here.

  2. it is encouraging to note that both females and males are interested in ending gender violence.
    i believe the first thing to do is to ensure that we all appreciateand understand GBV then we can positively fight and end it. awareness campaigns and dialoguing so that we can all reflect on our beliefs, behaviours and practices play avital role to this effect.through this then we can strategise on how best to end it – it is a process and i believe in malawi we are in the right track- As we say, it Begins with me, it Begins with you; it begins with us, to Commit, Act and Demand
