16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence
16 Days of Activism is an international project to bring attention to the worldwide problem of gender violence. From November 25 through December 10, the Zonta club of Cheyenne has placed a display of Wyoming victims of violence in the Laramie County Library. The Silent Witness silhouettes are life size portrayals of victims and include a short description of what happened to the person.

Our Zonta Club has also sponsored the signing of proclamations by Wyoming Governor Mead and Freudenthal, and Mayor Marian Orr and Rick Kaysen. Members also place orange luminary bags on November 25th and wear orange clothing the 25th of every month to bring attention to gender violence. “Zonta Says No” is one international initiative to prevent gender violence by educating the public and advocating for stronger laws against gender violence.

The 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence is an international campaign originating from the first Women’s Global Leadership Institute sponsored by the Center for Women’s Global Leadership in 1991. Participants chose the dates, November 25, International Day Against Violence Against Women and December 10, International Human Rights Day, in order to symbolically link violence against women and human rights and to emphasize that such violence is a violation of human rights.

This 16-day period also highlights other significant dates including November 29, International Women Human Rights Defenders Day, December 1, World AIDS Day, and December 6, which marks the Anniversary of the Montreal Massacre.
