In a big push, this year the UN has given a clarion call for ending gender based violence. The 2020 campaign theme is ‘FUND, RESPOND, PREVENT, COLLECT’. Like every year, ’16 Days of Activism’ against Gender-Based Violence (GVB) campaign starts today and ends on December 10.

  • “Fund women’s organizations”
