16 Days of Activism

Every year we support the campaign, 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence, which starts on 25 November and goes through to 10 December, encompassing: 

  • International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women / White Ribbon Day (25 November) 
  • World Human Rights Day / Soroptimist International Foundation Day (10 December) 


This year, we are developing a campaign for all five Federations, to create unified messaging for Soroptimists around the globe. 

The theme for our 2023 campaign is:

Wired for Change: Tech’s Impact on Gender-Based Abuse 

Wired for Change looks at the impact that technology has had in shaping gender-based abuse and violence; how it has been a force for bad but also how it has impacted the world positively.

You can view and use the communications toolkit via Trello, using the button below.
