The Student Consortium on Women, Peace and Security stands against all forms of GBV and calls for its immediate end.

“The 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence is an annual international campaign that kicks off on 25 November, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, and runs until 10 December, Human Rights Day” (UN Women).

This year's theme is "UNITE! Invest to Prevent Violence against Women and Girls." The Consortium compiled 16 facts for the 16 days.

As comes to a close, the Student Consortium wants to amplify the work of Department of State: Office of Global Women's Issues, UN Women, and countless other organizations that work to build a future free from GBV.
