This year’s “16 Days of Activism in Montenegro: No Violence against Women” campaign demonstrated that the key factor for fighting violence against women is the engagement of state authorities together with women’s action groups. The Campaign was organized jointly by international organizations and institutions, Government of Montenegro and the civil society, and it encompassed a series of public discussions, roundtables, distribution of education and information materials on violence and the ways to combat it, video-performances, etc..
“16 Days of Activism in Montenegro: No Violence against Women” is a United Nations campaign. Its main goal is to raise awareness around and end violence against women. The campaign takes place annually, starting on 25 November – International Day of No Violence against Women and ending on 10 December – International Human Rights Day.
