Today is 25th November, the United Nations International Day of Elimination of Violence against Women.  And from today to 10th December, Humans Rights Day, there are 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence Campaigns to galvanize action to end violence against women and girls around the world and to emphasize that such violence is a violation of human rights.

Near FM, member of AMARC Europe, will be joining the 16 Days Campaign by denouncing the impact of gender based violence in a series of promos that will be broadcast from today till December 10th. In fact, today this community radio has broadcast the play A woman, a dog, and a walnut tree that was performed live on air by the Near Drama Company on 15th October 2014 and has been followed up by a panel discussion on the topic of domestic violence.
