16 Days of Activism is Over, But What's Changed for Women?
The 16 Days of Activism of No Violence Against Women and Children - an international campaign to challenge and bring an end to violence - has just ended, but the work is only beginning. By the end of the 16 Days, Mlambo-Ngcuka expressed her shock at how the violence against women and children continued unabated during the campaign, vowing that: "Today, as we end 16 days of activism, I concur that we are not stopping the work for 365 days. We will work every day because every day a woman dies so who are we to rest."
