Bus, Sticker and White Ribbon Campaign – 16 days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence

In commemoration of International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women which falls on the 25th of November, the GBV Forum has launched a 16 day campaign (25th November to 10th December) to end violence against women.


GBV Forum’s 2008 slogan “Violence Against Women Hurts Us All … ACT NOW – End Violence Against Women” has been branded in buses and trishaws from different geo-locations and a television and radio campaign will be launched with the theme that “Men too can make a difference. Say NO to violence against women”.


Sri Lankans will also join the world-wide White Ribbon campaign, which is a personal pledge never to commit, condone nor remain silent about violence against women.
