16 Days International Blogathon

An annual collaboration between GENDER.ED, the Australian Human Rights Institute at the University of New South Wales and Ambedkar University Delhi to raise awareness of the 16 Days of Activism against gender-based violence (November 25 – December 10).

Daily blogs are posted by activists, academics and campaigners from around the world addressing key issues. In 2019 we published a total of 26 posts over 16 days and covered topics ranging from dowry abuse to on-campus campaigns addressing sexual harassment and violence; from textile testimonies on GBV to the ongoing impact of the failure of the Northern Ireland peace process to include the voices of LGBT+ people.

Contributors included academics and practitioners from the UK and Europe, North America, Africa, South Asia, Australia and Asia Pacific. In 2020 we plan to focus on arts-based approaches to addressing GBV and will be working closely with Edinburgh College of Art.
