Each year, for 16 days, bookended by the International Day to End Violence Against Women (25 November) and Human Rights Day (1 December), groups from around the world join together to speak out against gender violence in a campaign orchestrated by the Center for Women’s Global Leadership at Rutgers University.

This year's theme – Structures of Violence: Defining the Intersections of Militarism and Violence Against Women -- looks beyond specific forms of violence to underlying societal structures that permit gender-based violence to exist and persist.
