Press Red x UN’s 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence

Press Red is joining in the UN’s 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence, an annual global campaign that kicks off on the 25th November, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, and runs until the 10th December, Human Rights Day.

As part of this campaign, on each of these sixteen days, we will be publishing a blog post written by one of our volunteers and ambassadors, Ruth Akinradewo. She will be addressing – one day at a time; one injustice at a time – a particular issue as it relates to the global epidemic that is violence against women and girls.

Please check in on each of the days to read and find out more about what you can do to join us in turning the silence of these issues and PRESSING RED on gender-based violence.
