16 Days of Activism 2021: Re-writing problematic media narratives about the sex industry to combat gender-based violence

Joint initiative with CATWA

As in previous years, this year's International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women launches 16 days of activism to be concluded on the 10th of December 2021 — a day marking International Human Rights Day.

This year we have joined forces with Coalition Against Trafficking in Women Australia (CATWA) to re-write problematic Australian media narratives about the sex industry as part of a broader effort to combat gender-based violence.
