16daysNovember 25 is the start of the United Nations-declared 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence Campaign, finishing on December 10 – Human Rights Day.

The campaign looks at the different forms of violence that women and girls face. The theme this year is, ‘From peace in the home to peace in the world: make education safe for all!’

Human trafficking is one of the greatest examples of violence against women and girls, maintains Australian Catholic Religious Against Trafficking in Humans (ACRATH). Human trafficking is a $150 billion global industry – and growing. As well, millions of women and girls are forced to work in terrible conditions for little pay and no chance of an education.

Join the campaign and get helpful resources for promoting, reflecting, praying, and taking action during this 16-day campaign from ACRATH.
