16 Days of Activism

The World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts launches a mini campaign to raise awareness and mark the 16 Days of Activism campaign against gender-based violence, which runs from 25 November – 10 December 2018.

The pack focuses on spreading the message that girls are valuable, taking all ages through a journey about understanding that gender inequality is the root cause of violence against girls and young women, and if girls were valued we would be a step closer to ending the violence.

Take part in the activity, have a conversation and then share it through social media – remember to tag Girlguiding Scotland on Twitter or Facebook.

The hashtag for the campaign, which kicks off with the UN International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women on 25 November and runs until Human Rights Day on 10 December, is #16days.
