16 Days of Action
The 16 Days of Action campaign has started, focused on raising awareness about violence against women and girls (VAWG), and aimed at businesses to support them to take action against domestic abuse and violence. Running from 25 November to 10 December, a theme will be identified each day to explore various forms of domestic violence, so all workplaces will be better equipped to understand the signs and provide support.
