Jan Frances, Chief Executive of West Mercia Women’s Aid  explained: “The 16 Days of Action was originally launched in Canada in 1991; the dates are symbolic in that the 25 November is International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women and 10 December is International Human Rights Day.

“It’s an important event as it helps to highlight what can be done to tackle violence against women at a local level, supported by events and activities throughout the world.”

She concluded : “Thousands of people around the world are making a commitment to play their part in standing up to condemn violence against women.  Join us locally by making your personal pledge to support the campaign.”
