16 Days of Activism

16 Days of Activism is a worldwide campaign to oppose violence against women and girls. This year we join the UN Campaign #HearMeToo as part of the #UNiTE and invite all our partners to JOIN us for TEA. To create safe spaces for Women to Share, to Listen to and believe survivors. To amplify and inspire Women.

“The International theme calls to honour and further amplify these voices, to listen to and believe survivors, to end the culture of silencing and impunity, and to put survivors at the centre of the conversation and response. It aims to broaden the global conversation and highlight the voices and activism of all survivors of violence and advocates around the world—many of whom are often missing from the media headlines and social media discussions.”

UN November 2018

We encourage you to SHARE your story as part of the healing but also to inspire other women and girls to speak out, to UNiTE against domestic violence, rape and abuse.

Invite a few friends, pour a cup of TEA and create a safe space to SHARE your story, to end the culture of silence, create a digital story to amplify the voices of survivors and inspire others to speak out!
Find all your tips, tools and inspiration to organize a #HearMeToo Tea Party, a safe space where women can meet, share and learn from each other.
