There have been far too many tragic cases in Winnipeg lately, then there is the global situation… This battle should be over but it’s not and so we all have to keep doing what we can. The 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence is just around the corner. Whether you’re a local artist, or working in the field, or any citizen of Manitoba; Sarasvàti wants to hear about your ideas and your activism surrounding the prevention of gender-based violence here at home.

untitledThe 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence is happening from November 25 to December 10. Sarasvàti wants to know what you’ll be doing to participate. Tell us about your contributions to the movement before December 10th and we’ll enter you in a draw to be featured in our blog, as well the winner will receive two tickets to our next production – our 2016 International Women’s Week Cabaret of Monologues.

The 16 Days campaign begins on November 25th: International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, and runs until Human Rights Day on December 10th. In past years, people and organizations have participated in many unique ways; from holding forums to holding up signs with their ideas to stop gender-based violence. This year’s theme is Focusing on Prevention. How do you work to prevent gender-based violence? How do you change attitudes? What ideas do you have when it comes to prevention?
