For the 16 days of activism campaign 2022, SIE will focus on preventing violence against women, in particular in relationships. By learning to ‘Read the Signs’ of toxic and aggressive behaviour, not only the victim, but family, friends and relatives will be armed to properly identify it, take appropriate action and provide support.


Our strength is in numbers. International days give us the opportunity to amplify action by educating the public. They allow us to address our global concern on key subjects, and advocate for change.  Only joint and consistent action can bring results in alerting and educating men and women to prevent violence.



Every action each one of us takes makes a difference.


The 16 Days of Activism fittingly begins on 25th November, International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, and ends on International Human Rights Day.
