16 Days of Activism Campaign

16 Days of Activism Campaign

Take action today and stand with us against gender based violence


The 16 Days Of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence is an annual international campaign that runs from Thursday 25 November, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women until 10 December, Human Rights Day.

Women's Community Shelters stands against all forms of domestic and family violence and during this campaign we are asking you stand with us.

Simply choose one of the activities below (or even better choose all 3) and help us raise awareness, end violence against women and build an Australia where women are safe, secure, supported and equal.

1. Talk About It

Have a conversation with a family member, friend or colleague. Ask what does gender based violence mean? How can we prevent violence against women? 
Ask yourself what can I do to raise awareness about gender-based violence and challenge discriminatory attitudes? 
How can you create more public awareness in order to shine a spotlight on the issue of violence against women?

2. Take Action

It's easy to take action and we have a few simple suggestions below:

1. Right click and save the image below and make it your profile picture during the 16 Days of Activism campaign.

2. Write on a piece of paper, I Stand Against Domestic Violence, Will You Stand With Me? (see example below), take a photo of yourself holding it and post it on your socials, using the hashtags:   

#womenscommunityshelters; #Istandagainstdomesticviolence; #16daysofactivism, then tag 16 of your friends and ask them to do the same.

3. Write or share a Facebook, Insta, Twitter or LinkIn post about the 16 Days of Activism Campaign and ask 16 friends to share it.

3. Donate

Donate $16 dollars to WCS - $1 dollar for each day of the 16 Days of Activism campaign.
Ask your friends, family and colleagues to do the same.

$16 gives a woman the power of of choice and the independence to make calls or get online, whenever she needs and in her own time. 

Your donation today will help us continue our work assisting women and children escaping domestic and family violence and homelessness. 

Your support is critical to our effort and our work would not be possible without you.
Thank you.
