The 16 days of Activism continue to be marked and celebrated across Australia and around the world. The 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence is a global campaign to  raise awareness about violence against women and its impact on women’s physical, psychological, social and spiritual well-being.  As AWAVA believes, human rights cannot be universal without human rights for women. “The 2013 16 Days Campaign advocates for awareness and action on the multi-faceted intersections of gender-based violence and militarism, while highlighting the connection between the struggle for economic and social rights and ending gender-based violence”. Women’s Health in the North has created a fantastic tool kit to assist organisations and individuals to participate in the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence Campaign (16 Days Campaign).
