ROSE CAMPAIGN - 16 DAYS OF ACTIVISM
The Rose Campaign is a national advocacy campaign to end violence against women and girls. The Campaign takes its name from the original Rose button Campaign, created 27 years ago to commemorate 14 young women who were murdered at l’ Ecole Polytechnique, by calling for action on violence against women and promoting strategies to stop violence in our communities. From 25 November, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, to 10 December, Human Rights Day, the 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence Campaign is a time to galvanize action to end violence against women and girls around the world. For far too long, impunity, silence and stigma have allowed violence against women to escalate to pandemic proportions—one in three women worldwide experience gender-based violence.
