Family and domestic violence is never acceptable.
The 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based violence calls for the prevention and elimination of violence against women and girls. It runs from 25 November 2020 to 10 December 2020.
We recognise that family and domestic violence is unacceptable in any form and can affect anyone. It can include physical, financial or emotional abuse, abuse through technology, neglect and much more. Read more about what family and domestic violence is.
