From Peace in the Home to Peace in the World – 16 Days Campaign


Today I shared this link on my Facebook page; it is the most effective 16 days Campaign that I have ever seen. Well done to campaign organisers, Concern International and South African Networks.

The theme of the 2013 campaign is: From Peace in the Home to Peace in the World: Let’s Challenge Militarism and End Violence Against Women!

The 2013 16 Days Campaign advocates for awareness and action on the multi-faceted intersections of gender-based violence and militarism, while highlighting the connection between the struggle for economic and social rights and ending gender-based violence. The theme focuses on militarism as a creation and normalization of a culture of fear that is supported by the use or threat of violence, aggression, as well as military intervention in response to political and social disputes or to enforce economic and political interests.
