16 Days of Activism against Gender Based Violence 2020 Resources

Each year Mothers’ Union joins this United Nations international campaign with our fellow members and many other organisations around the world. We do this as part of our membership of the UN Commission on the Status of Women.

The 16 Days begins on 25 November (International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women) and ends on 10 December (International Human Rights Day).

MSH has made available a pack of resources which you can download from their website and they will be organising a number of online events, including some worship.
