The 16 Days of Activism is aimed at taking a stand against all forms of abuse and killing of women and children, eradicating violence against women and children. This year’s campaign is themed “Enough is Enough: 365 days to end Gender-Based Violence and Femicide (GBVF)”.

It is also an opportunity to update the public on the National Strategic Plan on Gender-Based Violence and Femicide (GBVF) and foster partnership for its implementation.

In September, the South African government pledged 1.1 billion Rand towards the fight against gender based violence, as well as a five point plan on improving the justice system in South Africa.
