Petition to Declare December 6 as the International Day To End Femicide


This petition has been initiated by Global 16 Days Campaign. It calls on the UN to declare December 6 as the International Day to End Femicide.

"Governments are legally obligated to end femicide, and many have promised to do so. ... 

Through an international day dedicated to ending femicide, we can:

  • AMPLIFY femicide awareness and the response globally
  • DEMAND that our governments act urgently to end ALL forms of femicide
  • UNITE our movements and struggles across borders and build solidarity"
