The Mothers’ Union is marking the 16 Days of Activism Campaign Against Gender Based Violence from 25th November to 10th December 2020.

16 Days is an international campaign, taking place each year from 25th November (International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women) until 10th December (International Human Rights Day).

Throughout the campaign, the Mothers’ Union movement joins with other organisations from approximately 187 countries who participate in the campaign, to raise awareness of - and call for an end to - gender-based violence in all forms and in all societies.

Here are some facts:
1 in 3 - Around the world, 1 in 3 women has been beaten, coerced into sex, or otherwise abused in her lifetime
1 in 10 - 1 in 10 women has experienced some form of sexual violence since the age of 15
1 in 20 - 1 in 20 women has been raped
2 a week, dead - 2 women are killed in the UK every week by a current or former male partner

"All are welcome and if you would like to join in this Service, please email ."
