The toolkit includes an article on the 30th Anniversary of the École Polytechnique massacre. It discusses key themes on the topic of gender-based violence. 01 | Take Action To End Gender-based Violence 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. 02| Take Action To End Gender-based Violence.
