The 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence is an annual international campaign that kicks off on 25 November, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, and runs until 10 December, Human Rights Day.
In recognition of this, Barwon Community Legal Service, in collaboration with, The Geelong Women’s Social Action Network invite you to join us and get creative by taking part in our Family Violence Prevention Campaign – The Clothesline Project.
The project encourages you to get creative at home and make or use clothing, tea towels, scarves or other old items you have, to tell stories or make statements about:
- Stopping violence against women;
- Women’s rights are human rights;
- Reclaim the Night – safe streets and homes;
- Ending sexual assault; or
- Messages that support ending violence in all forms.
Anyone can participate from October to November and get creative by painting, sewing or writing something to hang on a clothesline.
