Together we can end gender-based violence in schools
16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence in Schools
Millions of children and young people are subjected to gender-based violence in and around schools. The consequences of this for the physical, mental and emotional health of learners are devastating. Violence is preventable and we can all take action against it. Through the 16 Days of Activism Campaign, young men across the world are showing how.

Take action to end gender-based violence in schools
School-related gender-based violence (SRGBV) is not inevitable and there are steps we can all take to help end it. All across the world, young men are standing tall as gender champions in their schools and communities. During the 16 Days of Activism Campaign they invite you to become an ally in the movement by sharing ideas, speaking out and working together to create a new normal in which SRGBV is no more.
“Men should be more involved in gender-based violence because right now, women are the only ones taking real action”
