Intergenerational Action for Gender-Based Violence (GBV): Co-Creating the Future

For 25 years, the World YWCA has hosted an annual global campaign, held in the third week of October, to raise awareness, promote change and enable positive action towards ending violence against women, young women, girls and other marginalised genders. 

This year, between October 18-24, we will unite under the theme “Intergenerational Action for Gender-Based Violence (GBV): Co-Creating the Future” to invite local YWCAs, partners, intergenerational leaders, young women and women of all ages all to raise awareness and take action to end violence against women.

In a context where COVID-19 still presents challenges to the development of women of all ages, we believe that intergenerational action is key to counter GBV and build a better world. To co-create solutions for a world without GBV, we present our 2021 Toolkit and invite you to engage in this cause by using some of the following resources:

  • Easy-to-use and customisable social media templates (pages 12-13);
  • Key messages to advocate on social media (pages 9-13);
  • The latest data about GBV around the world (pages 5-7);
  • Ideas on getting together!: how to engage beyond social media (pages 14-16);
  • Great resources to increase awareness (page 17).

Download it and contribute to the fight against GBV by sharing the content in social media, planning engaging activities and/or advocating with other tools shared in this document!
