A global injustice
At least one in three women will experience some form of violence in their lifetime. Tearfund is passionate about preventing sexual and gender-based violence and supporting those who have been affected by it. We believe that Christians and churches should be leading the way in speaking out against this injustice.
16 Days of Activism Against Gender-based Violence is a global campaign which starts on 25 November, the International day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, and finishes on 10 December, International Human Rights Day. Please join us for these 16 days as we lift up this issue to God, and be equipped and encouraged to speak up and take action.
Pray for an end to violence against women
We have prepared a prayer guide to help you pray and reflect during each day of the campaign. It includes more information about our work to combat sexual and gender-based violence around the world, along with stories from survivors and daily prayer points.
Warning: contains mentions of sexual and gender-based violence that some readers may find upsetting.
