Since 1991, CWGL’s international 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence campaign has mobilized thousands of activists and organizations worldwide to increase awareness of gender-based violence and call governments to respond, protect, and prevent violence. Women’s security and well-being are compromised by both threat and experience of violence, particularly in conflict and post-conflict situations. Over the last three years the 16 Days Campaign has worked to highlight linkages between gender-based violence and militarism, including: (i)political violence against women; (ii)the proliferation of small arms and their role in domestic violence; (iii)sexual violence during and post-conflict; and (iv)the role of state actors as perpetrators of sexual and gender-based violence. As set out in the Vienna Declaration and Programme of Action in 1993, Member States asserted that “gender-based violence and all forms of sexual harassment and exploitation are incompatible with the dignity and worth of the human person, and must be eliminated”(paragraph 18). Since that time, States have reaffirmed their commitment to ending violence against women through the adoption of the Declaration on the Elimination of Violence against Women, the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action, the agreed conclusions of the 42nd
and 51st sessions of CSW, and Security Council resolutions 1325, 1820, 1888, 1889, and 1960. Despite these commitments, violence against women persists as a widespread and pervasive human rights violation. States have clear and concrete obligations to prevent such violence, prosecute and punish perpetrators, and provide redress and relief to victims and survivors of violence.
