The International 16 Days of Action Opposing Violence against Women 25th November to 10th December 2009

THE WOMEN’S AID 16 Days Campaign Theme for 2009 is ‘Breaking the Silence around Domestic Violence’. Our campaign logo reflects the reality of ‘home’ for the 1 in 5 women in Ireland who experience physical, emotional, sexual and financial abuse in intimate relationships.

Women’s Aid will focus on the reality of the abuse many women experience behind closed doors, when the world isn’t looking. We will, through a series of campaign actions, encourage everyone to take part in the campaign and to make women’s voices heard.

The 16 Days Campaign provides us all with the opportunity to break the silence around domestic violence. We hope you can join with us. By organising events in our local communities that highlight the issue of domestic violence and promote the services available for women, we make the issue visible, we give hope to women who are suffering and we hold perpetrators of abuse to account.
Our series of actions include:

The 16 Days of Action Newsletter: Women’s Aid has produced and distributed 2000 newsletters since late September to promote the campaign and to encourage groups and individuals to take part. The newsletter has been sent to all CDPs, FRCs and all violence against women support services, as well as to other campaigning organisations, politicians, the media, trade unions, libraries and student organizations.

The 16 Days Online: This year, the 16 Days Campaign Blog ( is even bigger and better. Live since 5th October, check out the site regularly for up to date information on events taking place nationwide, national and international statistics, downloadable campaign tools and media resources. The blog will feature accounts from campaign organisers throughout the country as well as messages of support from well known people from the world of politics, non-governmental organisations, the media and others.

If you are planning an event, no matter how big or small, send the details and we will post it to the blog. If you’d like to send any personal accounts, media coverage or photographs we’ll make sure they are included.

Women’s Aid will also promote the campaign and the blog through our own pages on Facebook and Twitter. Go to to follow us.

Women’s Aid are organising a number of other campaign actions during the 16 Days and we will update the information on the blog closer to the time.
‘16 FACTS FOR 16 DAYS’ Email Campaign: Join the thousands of people who receive the daily ‘16 Facts for 16 Days’ email to get the latest national and international statistics on violence against women delivered to your inbox each day of the campaign. Women’s Aid encourage recepients to forward the emails to friends, supporters and members during the campaign. Sign up today – or phone 01-8684721.

Women’s Aid Public Awareness Campaign: This year Women’s Aid will use the 16 Days Campaign to promote the Women’s Aid National Freephone Helpline and our one to one support and court accompaniment services. The campaign will also raise public awareness of the prevalence and nature of domestic violence in Ireland. This will include a concerted media campaign, online advertising and a national postcard campaign which will profile the 16 Days Campaign and raise awareness of domestic violence throughout communities in Ireland. Shortly before the 16 Days Campaign starts, Women’s Aid will send packs of 20 postcards to groups and individuals nationwide. We hope that these postcards will be distributed widely within local communities.

If you have any queries or would like to support the campaign please or phone 01-8684721.
