16 Days of Activism against gender-based violence

In November Deakin Library partnered with Diversity, Equity and Inclusion to create a digital display marking 25 November, International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women. This is day one of 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence, an annual international campaign that runs until Human Rights Day on Saturday 10 December.

16 Days of Activism is a global initiative galvanizing individuals, communities, and organisations to address gender inequalities and eradicate violence against women and girls around the world.

The five digital Verge display screens featuring a display for 16 Days Against Gender Based Violence. The first and last screens contain information about the event and exhibition and the middle three feature artworks.

The artwork included in the displays are works produced by people with lived experience of family violence, which have been created in collaboration with The Sexual Assault & Family Violence Centre. These artworks were also part of an exhibition held from late November to early February, and the displays linked to more information on how people could visit the exhibition.
