As a content warning, please note that this post includes information about gender-based violence and sexual violence.

The 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence is an annual international campaign that begins on Friday, November 25, 2022, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, and runs until Saturday, December 10, 2022, Human Rights Day.
This period includes December 6, Canada’s National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women (White Ribbon Day) which commemorates the 14 women killed specifically because they were women in the horrific 1989 Montreal Polytechnique massacre.
Carleton University is committed to ongoing learning and growing to deepen our understanding of gender-based violence through an intersectional lens and gaining skills to prevent, intervene and respond appropriately. As a community, Carleton is committed to maintaining a positive learning, working and living environment where violence of any kind, including gender-based violence, is not tolerated. We must collectively never forget the dire consequences of gender-based violence.
Visit Carleton’s 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence webpage to find out how you can join in the call for the prevention and elimination of violence against women and girls.
