Sixteen Days of Activism Against Gender Violence Zero Tolerance
6 December 2012. Zam Zam: Women and girls in Zam Zam camp for Internally displaced persons (IDP), North Darfur, perform traditional Darfuri dances at the event organized by UNAMID Human Rights to promote the new campaign "Together to Protect Women from Violence", as part of the Sixteen Days of Activism Against Gender Violence Zero Tolerance.
This 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.
