Get “Wired for Change”: Participate in the 16 Days of Activism

Every year Soroptimists, the organization that powers LiveYourDream.Org, and other members around the globe support the 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence.

What are the 16 Days of Activism?
People throughout the world unite to raise awareness about gender-based violence and call for an end to violence against women. The 16 Days kick off with the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women on November 25 and end with World Human Rights Day on December 10.

What is this year’s theme?
“Wired for Change: Tech’s Impact on Gender-Based Abuse.” While digital tools make our lives easier, they also present new ways to perpetuate abuse against women and girls, as well as ways for women and girls to escape violence. You can learn more about technology-facilitated gender-based violence from the UN Women here.
