CWGL launches the 2012 16 Days Theme Announcement!

Based on your inputs and suggestions, we are pleased to announce that the 2012 16 Days Campaign will continue with the global theme: From Peace in the Home to Peace in the World: Let’s Challenge Militarism and End Violence Against Women! This year’s Campaign marks our third year of advocacy on the intersections of gender-based violence and militarism.

The sub-themes of the Campaign are:

  • Sexual and gender-based violence committed by state agents, particularly the police or military
  • Proliferation of small arms and their role in domestic violence
  • Sexual violence in and after conflict

The global theme announcement is available in 35 languages from the CWGL 16 Days website:

We would like to sincerely thank the translators for donating their knowledge and time, and their commitment to ending gender-based violence!
