16 Days of Action

The 16 Days of Action Campaign is an important opportunity to raise awareness and call for change at an international, national and local level to end violence against women and girls.

Since 1996, Women’s Aid has run annual awareness campaigns and made resources available for local action to take place, we have held events outside the Dáil and brought national and international experts together to start conversations to tackle domestic violence and abuse in Ireland.

The campaign runs each year from 25th November (UN Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women) to 10th December (International Human Rights Day).

Last year, we ran our Zero Tolerance Awareness social media campaign which asked the public to tell us what zero tolerance of violence against women meant to them and we also launched research into the harms of pornography and the links with violence against women with a webinar featuring expert speakers.

Check back in September 2023 for details on this year’s campaign.
