The 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence
Is an National campaign coordinated by Siyakholwa and Team (used by activists) around the world as an organizing strategy to call for the elimination of all forms of gender-based violence.
Status of women
Gender equality is not only a basic human right, but its achievement has enormous socio-economic ramifications. Empowering women fuels thriving economies, spurring productivity and growth. Yet gender inequalities remain deeply entrenched in every society. Women lack access to decent work and face occupational segregation and gender wage gaps. They are too often denied access to basic education and health care in rural and informal settlements due to their culture. Women in all parts of the world suffer violence and discrimination. They are under-represented in political and economic decision-making processes.
Globally, even before the COVID-19 pandemic began, 1 in 3 women experienced physical or sexual violence mostly by an intimate partner
Emerging data shows an increase in calls to domestic violence helplines in many countries since the outbreak of COVID-19.
Sexual harassment and other forms of violence against women continue to occur on streets, in public spaces and online.
Survivors have limited information and awareness about available services and limited access to support services.
In some countries, resources and efforts have been diverted from violence against women response to immediate COVID-19 relief.

INCOME GENERATION FOR WOMEN: DECENT WORK AND SOCIAL PROTECTION
The issue we are solving :
The Women’s access to income through decent employment and social protection is the most transformative way to promote women’s economic empowerment and the achievement of substantive gender equality. This strengthens women’s agency and bargaining power, with broader benefits for families and communities. Women’s economic empowerment and gender equality achieved by extending women’s opportunities for work that is productive and delivers a fair income, security in the workplace, access to social protection, and better prospects for personal and social development. Efforts to secure women’s income generation start by promoting an enabling macroeconomic framework, where decent employment creation and gender equality remain the main objectives of Siyakholwa development and growth policies.
Inclusive policies generate decent jobs and allow for a more equal distribution of income and non-income gains. The burden of unpaid care work on women and girls puts major constraints on their time and opportunities, perpetuating their economic marginalization and preventing their enjoyment of many rights, including to paid work, education, and skills development. Support for unpaid care work and social protections, combined with active labour market policies, can have important multiplier effects across a spectrum of development goals, including increased female labour force participation and aggregate demand.
