16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence

Join Toora in taking action to end gender-based violence within “one generation” by downloading our 16 Days of Activism Toolkit.

Within this toolkit, our Action Calendar provides 16 small but important ways everyone can do to change the culture of violence against women and girls. The commitment to end gender-based violence is at the centre of the new 10-year national plan which also highlights the need to engage men and boys to help prevent violence.
“Research shows there are strong links between socially dominant forms and patterns of masculinity, men’s sexist attitudes and behaviours, and men’s perpetration of violence against women,” the plan states.
