Introduction
From November 25th, the International Day for
the Elimination of Violence against Women, to
December 10th, International Human Rights Day,
let’s help put an end to violence against women
and girls. CFUW clubs and members can be
trailblazers in their communities and across the
country, contributing positively to end genderbased
violence (GBV).
Unequal power relations, biased social norms and
practices, and discriminatory legal dispositions
have a profound impact on the prevalence of
violence against women and girls in our society.
Preventing and addressing violence against
women requires a broad spectrum of actions that
starts with our inner circle of friends and family
and goes all the way to our national and
international governing institutions.
CFUW has created a toolkit to help members get
involved in the 16 Days of Activism Against
Gender-Based Violence. This toolkit aims to
increase awareness and advise club members of
practical actions to help end GBV.
