16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence is an international campaign to challenge violence against women and girls. The campaign runs every year from 25 November, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, to 10 December, Human Rights Day.
The 2013 Gender Links Violence against Women (VAW) baseline study in Lesotho revealed that 86 percent of women in Lesotho have experienced some form of violence at least once in their lifetime. According to the research only 5% of women who reported cases of abuse had the police open a docket for them.
The Hub at Morija has been participating in the 16 Days of activism against Gender-Based Violence campaign with a series of videos. The videos have been insightful and revealing stories of what goes around us in Lesotho.
