The international 16 Days of Action Opposing Violence against Women runs from November 25, (which is UN Day Opposing Violence against Women ), to December 10 (which is Human Rights Day ).
In Ireland, domestic violence services, rape crisis centres, community development projects, family resource centres, SAFE Ireland, Women’s Aid, and other groups actively support the campaign. Mayo Women’s Support Services in collaboration with Mayo Rape Crisis Centre will host a number of awareness raising events throughout the 16 Days campaign.
MWSS will be using Man Up as the theme for the campaign. There will be various fundraising events and window displays. The annual lilies ritual will be held on December 9 in Castlebar.
