Elimination of Violence Against Women

This Guide is featured as part of our 16 Days of Activism campaign. The theme of this year's campaign is "Orange the World: End Violence Against Women Now!"

16 Days of Activism

Content in this Guide may prove challenging to some. User care is recommended and support information is listed below.

The purpose of the Guide is to act as a small virtual display of sample resources available from the Learning Library's collection of materials.

It will provide researchers and other visitors with resources and information to understand gender-based violence. Links are also provided to local, national, and international organizations focusing on the elimination of violence against women and girls.

The themes explored in this Guide include:

  • Gender-based violence
  • Sexual violence
  • Violence against women
  • Violence against Indigenous women and girls
  • Survivors
  • Resilience
  • Activism related to gender-based violence

The books and e-books included in this virtual collection include case studies, research, fiction, and biographical materials. Each record provides a brief synopsis of the content found within the book.

The International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women will mark the launch of the UN Women UNiTE to End Violence against Women campaign (Nov 25- Dec 10) — an initiative of 16 days of activism concluding on the day that commemorates the International Human Rights Day (10 December).
