Family Violence


16 Days of Activism 2018

In 2018, the focus of Women’s Health East’s 16 Days campaign was on partnerships that advance gender equality, but not just organisational partnerships. Your partners in action could be your neighbours, your local politicians, your educators or your workmates – anyone with whom you interact where you live, work, play and learn.

The #Together4GE campaign emphasised that when it comes to preventing violence against all women, we’re all in this together. We all have a responsibility to elevate the voices of women who have survived violence and we all have roles to play in facilitating a society free of gender-based violence.

The #Together4GE campaign aimed to:

  • Highlight the links between violence against women and gender inequality;
  • Increase understanding of what action to progress gender equality looks like (in particular by highlighting work and projects being done in the region); and
  • Call on everyone to commit to taking action, with a focus on four domains – promoting gender equality where we live, work, play and learn.

Every day between 25 November and 10 December, Women’s Health East generated original content across their social media platforms to highlight a gender equality message, either a quote or GE statement from a Speaking Out Advocate or a snapshot of the GE work being performed by a WHE partner organisation.
