November 25 marked the beginning of the global campaign, 16 Days of Activism to End Gender-Based Violence. Running annually from November 25 (the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women) to December 10 (Human Rights Day), the campaign aims to build global awareness about domestic violence as a human rights violation. The 2019 theme, Ending Gender-Based Violence in the World of Work, focuses on the link between domestic violence, labor rights, and economic justice for survivors.
Movements such as #MeToo, #TimesUp, and #NiUnaMenos highlight how women are enduring harassment, sexual assault, and domestic violence in the workplace. This type of abuse and harassment can lead to employment discrimination, which negatively impacts a survivor's financial stability.
