Day 13 of the 16 Days to Make Girls Heard: Take the message to your decision makers!
8 December 2011
The 16 Days campaign has seen girls and young women around the world taking action to Stop the Violence. How can we ask our decision makers to take notice and ensure that girls are really heard?
Spread the key messages
The Stop the Violence campaign asks for a world where girls and young women are safe, respected, included, protected, heard and free. You can help make this a reality for girls and young women around the world by asking your decision makers to take action on our key messages for the 16 Days.
Promote Michelle Bachelet's strategy
At the start of the 16 Days campaign, Michelle Bachelet, executive secretary of UN Women, launched her 16 step policy agenda for an end to violence against women and girls. Can you promote these 16 steps and ask your governments to take action?
Write to your decision makers
In our 16 Days campaign activities sheet there is a short guide to writing to your decision makers.
