16 days of activism 2020
Due to increasing social stress, the corona pandemic has led to more violence against women and girls, trans and non-binary people. In some countries, the abuse rate has risen to 30%.
Throughout the Covid19 pandemic we've seen how government responses have led to violence against women, and seem to justify the violence. The implementation of 'gender-blind and gender-insensitive' measures to contain the COVID-19 virus clearly demonstrates the deep-seated and institutionalised patriarchal norms that shape government responses that affect the experiences of women, girls, transgender and gender-nonconforming people. make the priority or invisible. The failure of resource allocation to meet their needs during COVID-19 is a symptom of systemic discrimination.
We've had enough and it's time for #LockdownPatriarchy. Violence against women and girls cannot be the "new normal", so we fight against it and want extra attention during the 16 days of activism against gender-based violence. Running from November 25, International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women and Girls, to December 10, International Human Rights Day.
