The campaign has been going on for about a dozen of years and reached Kyrgyzstan around 2000. Yet usually the events go unnoticed as so-called ‘soft news’. You can find more information about this campaign at What is the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence Campaign?
The interesting figure is that – Over 2,000 organizations in approximately 154 countries have participated in the 16 Days Campaign since 1991!
Women’s organizations in Kyrgyzstan take part in campaign very actively. Crisis shelter ‘Sezim’ makes films about the common violence situations while other groups make public actions and train police about family violence.
